Police have reached out to Shruti via email and social media to ask for more details on the basis of which they can register an FIR.
On Saturday, she confirmed today that staff from the Kolkata Cybercrime Cell had visited her home to inquire. She said, “I’ve heard a lot since I was a kid… about my skin tone. I always wanted to be an actor. I had to work hard to get to where I am today. But I am still bullied because of my complexion.
Das also explained how the “seriousness of online abuse” prompted her to take legal action.
She said, “I’m tired of being judged for my complexion. I am a human too. Although I have been considering taking legal action for some time, I finally made up my mind and did so on Friday. ”
She also claimed that she had been abused online by a woman who had a “personal vendetta” against her.
She said, “I was abused online for two years and raised my voice when needed. I was shocked to see the comment this woman made on the official channel page. I suddenly remembered who she was. She is the sister of one of my dance students. They used to attend classes and workshops organized by a theater group in Katwa.
Shruti Das made his television debut with the show ‘Trinayani’ and currently stars in ‘Desher Mati’.
