Recently, a 20-year-old woman named Ankita Shukla had shared her ordeal of online harassment that she had been facing by a group of men, allegedly associated with the BJP IT cell. Fed up with the continuous harassment and police inaction despite her written complaint, Ankita had to open a Twitter account to have her voice heard.

In a series of tweets, Ankita had shared the lewd messages, Facebook posts and chats where a group of men, namely Ayush Vedant, Kunwar Anmol, Shrikant Rathore and others had been hounding her. Ankita had shared that she had filed a written complaint regarding the online harassment at cybercrime cell, Jamshedpur and still had received no help.
