Forward Pinarayi jokes at your risk, one arrested


Tvm: The Cyber Crime Cell of Kerala Police today arrested a 47 year old person from Kuttipuram in Malappuram District for allegedly forwarding an email defaming the CPI(M) State Secretary Pinarayi Vijayan and the Party.

The Cyber Crime Police took up a case following a complaint by Pinarayi Vijayan regarding circulation of an email containing matter captioned ‘A political note (explanation) on the bad performance in the LSG elections by Comrade Pinarayi Vijayan’. Pinarayi had complained that the contents of the mail were a deliberate attempt to show him and the Party in a bad taste after the recent drubbing in the Local Body elections. The mail apparently had some dialogues from an old Malayalam film ‘Sandesham’ featuring vetran actor Shankaradi.

Moyadu, who is working as a Technician at the Keltron’s unit in Kuttipuram was today arrested by a team lead by J Sukumarapillai, SHO(DySP), Cyber Crime Police Station, Trivandrum and released on bail thereafter. Moyadu is supposed to have got this mail from his cousin Hamsa who is in Macedonia who got it from a mail ‘Just 4 a Joke’. The hard disk of the computer which was used to forward the mails has been seized by the Police.

This is the second time Pinarayi Vijayan has taken up a case with the Cyber Crime Police. It was in November 2009 when two youths were arrested for forwarding a mail which credited him as the owner of a huge mansion. Imagine what will happen if Obama or Laloo decided to file cases for forwarding mails against them?
