I’m really glad to hear the Mumbai Police cyber cell have located and arrested the creep who tweeted rape threats to a child. Now hoping for similar swift action in cases of female journalists who receive rape threats almost on a daily basis.— Farhan Akhtar (@FarOutAkhtar) November 10, 2021
On social media, Farhan Akhtar expressed his joy at the man’s arrest. At the same time, he stated that he hopes that strict action be taken against such threats received by female journalists. ‘I am very happy to hear that the cyber cell of Mumbai Police has traced and arrested the lousy person who threatened a girl child with rape,’ Farhan Akhtar wrote on social media.
A request for female journalists was also made.
Farhan Akhtar went on to say, ‘Now I expect similar action for women journalists who are threatened almost daily like rape,’ in a tweet.

How low have people sunk?
