Deccan Chronicle - - City - DC COR­RE­SPON­DENT

Cy­ber­crime of­fi­cials from Rachakonda com­mis­sion­er­ate ar­rested a 27-year-old stalker who sent abu­sive mes­sages to a woman after his col­league asked him to do so.

Ac­cord­ing to the cy­ber­crime po­lice, a woman named Uma Ma­hesh­wari took the help of Narayana Rao, by stat­ing that she fell in love with a per­son named Ma­hesh.

She bore a grudge against him as he was not re­turn­ing her calls and re­quested Rao to help de­fame his rel­a­tive.

D. Ja­land­har Reddy, cy­ber­crime in­spec­tor of po­lice, said, “Uma pro­vided Ma­hesh’s rel­a­tive’s num­bers and pho­tos. Rao in turn posted the woman’s phone num­bers and pho­tos in What­sApp groups men­tion­ing she was a call girl. He down­loaded nude pho­tos from porn sites and for­warded them to de­fame the woman.”

“A rel­a­tive of Ma­hesh lodged a sex­ual ha­rass­ment case, as the ac­cused sent abu­sive mes­sages on What­sApp. Po­lice reg­is­tered a case un­der Sec­tion 354 (D) of IPC and 67 & 67 (A) of IT Act.
