Anurag Kashyap Lodges FIR Against Troll Threatening To Rape His Daughter

After a social media troll threatened to rape filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s daughter on Twitter, the filmmaker has filed an FIR against him. Anurag had tweeted soon after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clean sweep in 2019 Lok Sabha elections to congratulate him and also shared a screenshot of the troll who threatened to rape his daughter.

The tweet read, “Dear @narendramodi sir. Congratulations on your victory and thank you for the message of inclusiveness. Sir please also tell us how do we deal with these followers of yours who celebrate your victory by threatening my daughter with messages like this for me being your dissenter.”

Anurag has now lodged an official complaint at the Amboli police station. An FIR under sections 504, 509 of Indian Penal code and 67 of the information technology act has been filed against the troll. He then thanked the Mumbai Police, Maharashtra Cyber cell and others for their support on Twitter. He tweeted, “Anyways I want to thank @MumbaiPolice @MahaCyber1 @Brijeshbsingh for helping me with filing the FIR. Thank you so much for the amazing support and starting the process. Thank you @Dev_Fadnavis and thank you @narendramodi Sir. As a father, I am more secure now.”

Before posting his thank you tweet, Anurag had been in a tiff with filmmaker Ashoke Pandit and actress Suchitra Krishnamoorthi had even questioned Kashyap for tagging PM Modi in his twitter post. In her tweet, Krishnamoorthi said, “Dear @anuragkashyap72 I have been openly pro #Modi & yet have often rcvd rape threats for my daughter & even myself when controversy has erupted. I have done what a right thinking citizen must do ie complained to #MumbaiPolice & #cybercrime cell. NOT tag #PM !!! Whats ur point?”

Kashyap replied to Krishnamoorthi by saying, “Point is – one statement from him that he does not endorse hatemongers will shut them up.
