With increasing amount of people finding solace in using social media, Indian citizens now turn towards reporting crimes on these platforms with the objective to raise awareness.
Things had just settled after the Maryanna Abdo case and another similar incident in Delhi has been shared on Facebook with more than 21k shares (at the time of filing the report). On what exactly the guy did. The accused pased derogatory remarks and threatened the girl but that didn’t stop her from filing a complaint against him in Tilak Nagar police station.

Mumbai Police was successful in tracing the accused in Abdo’s case and arrested him with the help of social media. Truly, a tweet in time curbs crime. Let’s hope justice is served this time as well.
Since the girl went ahead and stood for herself, hope she gets all the support and power she needs. Social media is proving to be a blessing with every passing day for Indian women and encouraging them to use it.
