Full Story: 

The incident unfolded when Ranjith R M allegedly posted a disturbing message on Facebook on October 4, calling for harm to be inflicted on the DK brothers. The Youth Congress President of Jayanagar Block, Sharath, promptly filed a complaint, leading to the Bengaluru police taking swift action and arresting Ranjith on Wednesday.

Ranjith had presented himself on social media as a cybercrime detective associated with the Bengaluru city police, adding an alarming dimension to his online activities. However, subsequent investigations revealed that he is, in fact, an employee of a private firm. The misrepresentation of his role as a law enforcement official on social media adds another layer to the gravity of the case.

Aside from the threat against the DK brothers, Ranjith’s Facebook profile also contained derogatory posts targeting Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. This revelation raises concerns about the extent of inflammatory content circulating on social media platforms and its potential consequences.

The Jayanagar police are actively engaged in further probing the case, seeking to determine the motive behind Ranjith’s online posts and any potential accomplices involved. The incident underscores the importance of monitoring and addressing inflammatory content on social media, emphasizing the responsibility that comes with online expression.

As the investigation unfolds, authorities are likely to delve deeper into Ranjith’s digital footprint to understand the context and motivation behind his actions. The arrest serves as a reminder that the misuse of social media to incite violence or spread hatred will not go unchecked, emphasizing the need for vigilance and swift action against those who threaten the peace and security of individuals or communities.
