Hyderabad: A case has been booked by the Osmania University police against five websites for telecasting the details of the Shadnagar rape-murder victim.

Vijay Gopal, founder of Forum Against Corruption, made a complaint against the websites for their coverage about the incident. “The news has been widely covered by the media houses in the country. However some local/regional media houses are violating the laws and guidelines laid down by the honorable Supreme Court in regard to coverage in such cases,” he stated in the complaint.

Following the complaint, the police booked a case under Section 228A (Whoever prints or publishes the name or any matter which may make known the identity of any person against whom an offence under section 376 was committed) of IPC. On conviction the guilty are awarded a jail term which may extend up to two years or fine).

“A case was booked against the web portals following a complaint made by one Vijay Gopal. As the issue relates to online activity, our superiors have sought legal opinion. Most probably the case will be transferred to the Cyber Crime police station for further investigation,” said the Osmania University police.
