The Inside Story
Visakhapatnam: A 20-year-old girl, studying final-year B.Sc in a private college here, was arrested by cyber crime investigation cell (CCIC) police on Thursday on charges of defaming another girl student of the same college through a fake Facebook account by posting her photos along with her phone numbers with some abusive comments.

CCIC inspector K. Satyanarayana Rao said Pollamuri Bhagya Sri Rama Amrutha felt has been nursing a grudge against a girl who is also a B.Sc final-year student, over a petty issue and used to quarrel with her frequently.

Amrutha, who was not aware the gravity of cyber crimes, created a fake FB account in the name of the girl and posted her pictures with unsavoury comments to take a revenge.

On noticing the fake account and abusive material against her on FB, the victim along with her grandfather lodged a complaint with IV town police station (Dwaraka Zone) around two months ago and subsequently the case was transferred to CCIC in the city.

The CCIC team led by Inspector K. Satyanarayana Rao investigated the case based on the FB profile log details and user details. They arrested Amrutha under Section 66(A) and 66 (C) of IT Act 2000, 2008 and seized a tablet PC, some SIM cards and a mobile phone from her.
