Twenty three-year-old farmer from Andhra Pradesh, U Mani Ratnam, was arrested by Cyber Crime police of Hyderabad Commissionerate on Friday for sending vulgar content to women through social media. The tech-savvy farmer was finally caught when he sent abusive messages to a SHE teams sub-inspector.
The accused, Mani Ratnam, is from Nandamuru village in Kovvur mandal of West Godavari district. Mani used to randomly key in the cellphone numbers in the ‘Truecaller’ app installed in his cellphone and if the app shows that the particular number belongs to woman, he used to send obscene photos, videos and vulgar messages to that person through WhatsApp.
He also used to send obscene content to women on Facebook. On February 22, SHE teams SI M Shoban Babu received a complaint from a woman through ‘Hawk Eye’ app about getting abusive messages through WhatsApp from an unknown number since three months.
