City Police Commissioner K G James on Wednesday ordered Ernakulam North Circle Inspector to register a fresh case on the basis of the complaint given by Vijitha, who committed suicide after one of her relatives allegedly posted abusive comments against her on Facebook.

According to K G James, the case would be registered under the IT Act. “The case would be registered on the basis of the complaint given by Vijitha.

After the investigation, a decision would be taken on whether Ratheesh, who allegedly posted abusive comments on Facebook, should be included as an accused in the case. Assistance of Cyber Cell would be sought to trace out the Facebook comments. It has also been asked to investigate the role of other persons in the case,” he said.

Ernakulam North Circle Inspector M G Sabu has been assigned to conduct the investigation.

He has also been assigned to investigate into a separate case on what  led Vijitha to commit suicide.

Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mattancherry, has been asked to conduct an internal probe into the failure of the police in registering the case when Vijitha approached them with the complaint.

Vijitha, a native of Purakkad in Alappuzha, was found hanging from a ceiling fan at an apartment in Cheranaloor on Sunday night. Her relatives and neighbours had alleged that she committed suicide after Ratheesh, one of her relatives, posted abusive comments against her on Facebook.

The police had not registered any case even after she gave a complaint against Ratheesh.
