A US-based engineer who hacked his colleague’s e-mail ID to send out obscene mails and created a fake profile of her on Facebook came back home to Hyderabad in the small hours of Monday, and was received by the police at the airport.

The CID’s cyber crime unit said Sai Kumar’s victim used to work in the same US company as he and had recently returned to Hyderabad. She had apparently refused to marry him, and he decided to get back at her, using a proxy server to conceal his identity.

ADGP (CID) S V Ramana Murthy said the girl lodged a complaint stating Kumar hacked her mail ID and sent out obscene content. “Based on information provided by service providers, the mails were traced to Kumar,” Murthy said.

Kumar confessed to his offence and said he befriended the girl by winning her sympathy with sob stories.

One day he proposed to her, but she said no. He tried emotional blackmail, threatening to commit suicide.

He graduated to harassing her with abusive mails, sending obscene images to her friends and relatives from her email. He created a fake Facebook profile of her and started damaging her character.
