Jaipur: A woman had suffered life threats and sexual abuses online for her tweets against gymnast Dipa Karmakar's performance in Rio Olympics. She has demanded the help of Union Minister Sushma Swaraj. The case has been filed by Rajasthan Police.
An FIR has been lodged against three persons under Section 66 D (Punishment for cheating by personation by using computer resource) and 67 (Punishment for publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form) of the IT act.
On 14 August, a woman had wrote, "Conflicted about Dipa Karmakar's Olympic Vault final.” "It is an incredible achievement, of course but gymnasts from richer countries don't have to perform the produnova, called the death vault, to gain points.”
She added, "They can do easier vaults and execute it better because: better infrastructure, better training, better everything. Tonight, she is going to risk her life to win an Olympic medal. "Life is not worth any medal, for any damned country."
A woman was criticized by the people for her remarks against gymnast Dipa Karmakar. After her request, the Chief Minister's Office interceded and a senior police officer met her.
"After receiving directions, I met the girl on the night of August 14 and spoke to her about the matter. She filed a complaint and the FIR was lodged on 15 August with Pratap Nagar Police Station," DCP East Kunwar Rastradeep said on Wednesday.
"We are in the process of obtaining some IP addresses and are writing to Twitter seeking information about certain the handles.”
"Since their server is located out of the country, it will take some time for us to reach to the users who abused her," the officer said.
"We are working on the case considering the gravity of the case. Since the servers are placed outside India, it is a bit of a time consuming process but we will get it done as early as possible," Mukesh Chaudhary, a cyber crime expert said.
