Hyderabad: A software engineer was arrested here for allegedly creating a fictitious profile of a girl with vulgar content on social networking sites after the girl's parents rejected his marriage proposal to their daughter, Cyber Crimes Police said Saturday.

Shiva Shankar Madisetty, a resident of Ramanthapur here and working as a software engineer at a MNC software firm in Bangalore, was arrested yesterday, a senior police officer said.

Madisetty's parents, who were looking for a match for their son, came across the victim's profile at a marriage bureau.

They asked for the girl's hand for their son but due to personal reasons the girl's parents rejected it, police said. Apparently dejected over it, Madisetty wanted to harass the girl, CID Superintendent of Police B Sumathi told a press conference.

After collecting details (including cell phone number) of the girl through social networking sites, Madisetty created a fictitious profile of the girl with her photo and added vulgar content, the police officer said.

The woman started getting phone calls based on the false profile after which she complained to Cyber Crimes Police. "The phone calls caused the victim and her family members deep mental agony," Sumathi said.

During the course of investigation, the IP address was traced to Madisetty, the police officer said.
