The cybercrime wing of the Greater Chennai police (GCP) Tuesday arrested a man for allegedly posting objectionable content about DMK leaders on social media.

According to the police, based on a complaint filed by a resident of Raja Annamalai Puram in Chennai, a case was registered at the Cyber Crime Police Station on August 27. The complainant informed that he came across a post on X (formerly Twitter) on August 25 that had ‘objectionable comments’ and morphed images of Chief Minister M K Stalin and DMK Thoothukudi MP K Kanimozhi.


Following the complaint, the police conducted an inquiry and zeroed in on the X handle that had posted the ‘abusive’ content.
