The Cyber Crime police arrested a person on the charge of impersonating and creating a fake Facebook account and posting comments. According to Cyber Crime Station Inspector Satyanarayana, Reddy Gowtham (29) son of Govinda Rao and a resident of Chodavaram, created a fake Facebook account in the name of Ganta Ravitej, son of TDP MLA, Bheemili, Ganta Srinivasa Rao and was spreading his network, with the idea of cheating them later.
Gowtham, along with his wife, was staying in his friend’s house at Vepagunta and, using a laptop and net connection, he created the fake account in June 2013. Since then he had been building a network of friends by posting Ravitej’s family photographs and other details.
He also created an email account in Ravitej’s name. The Cyber Crime sleuths zeroed in on him after receiving a complaint from Mr. Ravitej.
