Accused Ayush Vedant arrested after woman’s allegations of online harassment go viral on social media

After Ankita’s tweets went viral, the National Commission of Women has taken cognisance of the matter and assured her of help.

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.

Now, OpIndia.com has learnt from reliable sources that Ayush Vedant has been arrested and as per our source, he is being taken to Jamshedpur. He was arrested some time this afternoon. The whereabouts of other men involved in the matter are not known as of this moment.

After Ankita’s tweets went viral, the National Commission of Women has taken cognisance of the matter. In a later tweet, Ankita stated that NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma had talked to her personally and has assured all help. In his defence, Ayush has said that Ankita also indulged in being abusive and targeted him and his family. His mother has filed a police complaint regarding the same.

This is a developing story and we will update our report with more information as and when we receive it.
