The News Minute | October 21, 2014 | 08:53 am IST Days after three Manipuri students were assaulted in Bangalore by unknown miscreants who demanded that they speak Kannada, the north-east division police have now registered a case against a woman from Bangalore for writing an offensive post on Facebook against one of the victims, states a report by Bangalore Mirror. The police are trying to track the woman. The woman, a medical electronics graduate in the city, has been booked under the IT Act, section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, etc), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace), and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation), states the report. In her post, the woman allegedly called one of the students a 'swine' and wrote that he 'should be stoned to death', following which the student emailed the North-east DCP urging to take action against her. The woman had also alleged that the student was beaten because he was trying to convert others to Christianity. The woman is said to have removed the post from her Facebook page and the account was also deactivated later, adds the report. Last week the Bangalore Police had opened rowdy sheets against the three men who assaulted the three Manipuri students on the night of October 14.
