Bantwal, May 07, 2015: The Vittal police who arrested a person named Balakrishnaraj Neerchal hailing from Maani Peraje on the charges of sharing and posting abusive and obscene comments on Facebook, later released him on a conditional bail. The police who acted on a tip off that the accused had come to Neerchal from Bengaluru, arrested him from a marriage hall at Neerchal on May 6, Wednesday.
The arrest followed a complaint by a person who had even furnished evidences to prove his claim that the accused had used his minor daughter’s photo and even posted an abusive comment on Facebook.
What has been construed is that Balakrishnaraj was in the habit of sharing the abusive and slanderous comments and photos which one Shantharam Hegadekatte who is in Nigeria was posting in a Facebook group. It is being said that Shantharam used to misuse the photos of women found in Facebook. Balakrishnaraj even used to post comments on these photos.
The police who had once earlier been to Bengaluru in search of him, failed in their efforts, but succeeded the second time when they got information that he was in Neerchal.
Sources said the accused has confessed his guilt and was later released on conditional bail.
