Hyderabad: Ever since the gut-wrenching incident of the 26-year-old Hyderabad vet’s rape and murder, people have taken to social media platforms to express what they felt. However, as with everything, there have been two sides to this as well. While the majority demonstrated their outrage at the incident, some have used it to post vulgar comments against the victim.
Hyderabad cyber officials arrested three men for posting derogatory comments on social media against Disha. The officers registered cases under sections 354, 504, 506, 509 IPC and Section 66C and 67 of IT Act.
Rachakonda cyber crime officials arrested 18-year-old Amar Nath based on technical evidence from Kothapeta of Guntur, Andhra Pradesh. He used his Facebook account to post vulgar comments against Disha. Amar Nath, who had only studied until class X, had been working in a medical store.
Recently, Amar Nath became friends with another accused known as ‘Simley Nani’, and the duo started posting objectionable content against Disha. On November 29, Simley Nani posted vulgar comments, and Amar Nath followed suit.
Once the Facebook post went viral, the latter deleted his account out of fear, but police caught him nonetheless on Thursday. Meanwhile, the police have discovered Simley Nani’s account and posts, but the user is currently missing.
Cybercrime officials also arrested 28-year-old Anil Kumar Ambala from Gundrapally in Nalgonda for posting derogatory comments on Facebook. The arrest followed a complaint filed by Dr Vijaya Kesari, a resident of Raidurgam in Hyderabad.
She said that while browsing her Facebook account, she found vulgar and objectionable comments by Anil Kumar on December 1. He made the comments against a prominent woman dignitary in connection with Disha’s death. Police will produce him before the Additional Metropolitan Magistrate Court.
22-year-old ITI student Chavan Sriram marks the third arrest made by police officials for posting abusive comments against Disha. The officials caught Sriram on Tuesday based on technical evidence. Inquiries revealed that he was on Facebook by the name ‘Stalin Sriram’ and posted content using his mobile phone. Police suspect that he is addicted to pornography.
Recently, police registered a case against filmmaker Daniel Shravan, who had posted comments on Facebook promoting rape culture.
