According to police report, the arrested person is C. Sivakumar from Mannargudi from Tiruvarur district. The arrest was done upon complaints received from three cyber-based persons including two women whose pictures were used to morph and used online.
These women have alleged that Sivakumar had uploaded morphed indecent pictures of them and sought action.
Similarly, Suresh Kumar from Chennai also had filed a complaint saying that the post made by Sivakumar with user id ‘Mannai Siva’ would lead to enmity between two communities and sought action against Sivakumar as he has posted defamatory content on Tamilnadu chief minister Palaniswami and deputy chief minister O. Panneerselvam including other ministers.
