Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Apr 23 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Shaina NC has filed a police complaint after allegedly receiving lewd messages. "The reason I have registered an FIR that these perverts think they can get away. They will be prosecuted under the Information Technology (IT) Act," Shaina told ANI. The police have registered a case against the accused under section 354 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) for outraging the modesty of a woman and relevant sections of the IT Act. Last month, Shaina had alleged that she was being stalked and that she had registered an FIR with the Mumbai Police in the same. "I have been receiving lewd messages for a while now. For any woman who values her self respect and dignity, she would do exactly what I did. So, I took a courageous decision to register an FIR with the cyber crime and I must say that the police and commissioner of police have been supportive," Shaina NC told ANI. (ANI)
