Hyderabad: The Cyber crime Wing of the Telangana Crime Investigation Depar-tment (CID) has registered cases against a few websites and charged them for violating the Information Technology Act.
This was after the Movie Artists Association (MAA) lodged a complaint stating that some websites were publishing obscene photographs of actresses and publishing articles with vulgar content about them.
MAA president Mr Shivajiraja, general secretary Mr Naresh and other office-bearers informed the CID cyber crimes wing that many websites were publishing defamatory contents and were also uploading obscene and fake photographs by morphing the images of film actresses.
The cyber crime sleuths identified over 20 such websites that are posting similar contents.
“We suspect that there are more such websites. We are in the process of identifying the persons behind those websites,” a senior official said.
Based on the complaint, a case under Sections 67 and 67A of Information Technology Act has been registered.
