Ccpur: The lone MDC of ADCC Grace Zamnu on Tuesday filed a complaint with the Women Police, Churachandpur with regard to a viral post in social media made by an unknown person who spread news of her being Covid-19 positive. The investigation will be taken up by the cyber crime department of the police who have already registered an FIR.
The public representative said that around 7.00 PM last night she found out that an unknown person had posted that Grace Zamnu the sitting MDC of Muallum had tested positive of Covid-19 . She said that she never had a sign or symptom and never tested for Covid-19 saying that as a lone female member she feels that the intention is highly doubtful.
She told media persons that being the lone female member of ADCC and a social worker the act was intended to tarnish her image and insult her as a woman and a human being. She had asked the police to take necessary steps at the earliest and book the culprit and give a befitting punishment as per law.
In the shadow of the pandemic where people are scared and disturbed mentally , emotionally and physically of Coronavirus and when the government had made many order against misusing social media , particularly in regard to Cronavirus, someone playing and falsely accusing someone is a serious crime that should not remain unpunished, said Grace Zamnu.
She thanked citizens for their support saying that truth will prevail ultimately and the culprit will be booked while asking all to desist from making false and malicious accusations as was made to her.
