Mumbai: The Mumbai Police arrested a 27-year-old man for allegedly creating 11 fake profiles on Instagram to sexually harass his wife after she lodged an FIR against him for giving her triple talaq last year.

The 30-year-old complainant told the police that she lives with her parents and three-year-old daughter. She has three Instagram profiles, one for herself, one for her three-year-old daughter who is handled by her, and one for her cooking videos.

In December 2021, the complainant started receiving obscene messages from an unknown Instagram account. At first, he ignored them but gradually the number of abusive words increased. She then checked her daughter’s Instagram account and found similar abusive messages from multiple accounts. In all, the woman provided details of 11 such Instagram accounts.

In February this year, he moved to the Oshiwara police station, where an FIR was registered under sections 500, 501, 504, 506, 509 of the IPC and 66C of the IT Act. On the basis of technical evidence, the police traced the accused who turned out to be the husband of the complainant.

The police then came to know that the accused had given triple talaq to the complainant in 2021 after which he had approached the police and an FIR was registered against him under the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Act, 2019. The man started harassing his wife.

The accused was granted bail by a magistrate court in Andheri on Tuesday as the offence is bailable and there were no justifiable grounds for police custody.
