Praneeth Hanumantu, a popular YouTuber and content creator, was arrested by Telangana’s Cyber Security Bureau in Bengaluru on Wednesday. The arrest followed allegations of making sexually coloured remarks on a reel featuring a man and a child posing as father and daughter. Praneeth, who is the son of IAS officer H Arun Kumar, Special Commissioner of Agriculture in Andhra Pradesh, was booked by the Telangana police for his comments. Earlier this week, Praneeth and his friends, known by their pseudonyms Burra Yuvaraju, Adi, and Dallas Nageshwar Rao, conducted a live stream on Praneeth’s YouTube channel, Phanumantu, which boasts nearly 182,000 subscribers. During the stream, they reacted to the reel and made inappropriate comments about the father-daughter relationship, sparking widespread outrage online. The controversial video has since been made private. Felix Gerald Arrested: Tamil Nadu Police Apprehends RedPix 24x7 YouTube Channel Editor, Accused of Making Derogatory Statement Against Women Police Officers, From Noida.
