Mumbai, July 8: To take revenge for dumping her after eight years of relationship, a jilted woman allegedly created obscene social media profiles of his former lover's sister, said the Mumbai Police. The woman, identified as Aarti Jadhav, was arrested on Sunday.
"Jadhav created four fake Facebook accounts between May and June this year and posted the picture of the sister of her estranged lover, besides obscene videos. She also posted the mobile number of the victim who was flooded with calls during the period," a crime branch official told PTI.
A complaint was subsequently lodged by the victim with the Vile Parle police station. The police managed to trace the woman who, according to cops, has confessed to creating fake profiles that were used to send friend requests to the friends and relatives of the other woman.
During interrogation, the accused disclosed that she committed the crime to avenge her lover who had married another woman recently, the official said.
According to the official, the accused also harbored a grudge against the victim since the two had fought on some issue in the past.
A case under sections 419 (cheating by personation) and 500 (punishment for defamation) of the IPC besides under IT Act was registered against Aarti Jadhav.
