People online were outraged by this insanity and called for action on the abuser. According to a report by NDTV, Mumbai police has nabbed an IIT-Hyderabad graduate who has allegedly sent rape threats to the infant.

As per reports, the accused identified as Ram Nagesh Srinivas Akubathini, is a software engineer who had been working with a prominent food delivery app in Bengaluru. However, he quit his job to prepare for a masters degree in the US. In the next couple of days, he would have headed to the US but the Mumbai police got hold of him in Hyderabad before his departure.

Apparently, the 23-year-old man has a history of online trolling and has been using multiple identities to do so. His middle-class family wasn’t aware of his activities till now and can’t determine why he did so. The class topper, hailing from the Sangareddy area in Telangana, is currently in a Mumbai prison. His family shared that Akubathini was upset about India’s continuous loss during the T20 World Cup but he might have accidentally posted the tweet which was later deleted.

Speaking about his arrest, Indrakaran police station Sub Inspector Rajesh Naik said, “We were informed that a team is coming from Mumbai to pick someone up from our jurisdiction. One person from our team accompanied the Mumbai team and picked up the youth. They have not revealed too much information about the case. His father has accompanied him to Mumbai.” A complaint was filed and an FIR was registered against the accused under relevant sections of the IT Act.

Many including Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar called for swift action in cases like these.

The engineer had a well-paying job and definitely a bright future. But his thoughtless remark has put his life in jeopardy.
