Bhubaneswar: The ongoing trend of trolling and cyber bullying has compelled celebrities to distant themselves from social media.

While cyber bullying has left some celebs in a state of shock, some others have mustered courage to stand up against the miscreants.

Recently, noted Odisha-born actress Prakruti Mishra decided to get the miscreants punished after becoming a victim of cyber bullying.

She approached Bhubaneswar police on Wednesday and filed a complaint against the online haters.

To inform and encourage other victims of cyber bullying, Prakruti took to her Instagram handle to share her ordeal and the step which she took following the incident.

Sharing a photocopy of the FIR she filed, Prakruti wrote: “Few days back, I was a victim of cyber bullying after posting a brand endorsement photograph on my social media. Many of us, celebrities, irrespective of our gender, face vicious cyber attacks on personal level which sometime drag our families as well. These type of attacks sometimes turn into real threats causing a great deal of mental agony and harm to individuals and their families. I would like to take this opportunity to thank and personally show my gratitude to Odisha Cyber Crime Department, the Commissionerate of Police-Bhubaneswar, DCP-Bhubaneshwar, DG Police-Odisha, IIC- Mancheswar Police Station-Bhubaneswar for helping me and my family during this trying period, where we were going through mental depression for all the fake stories and unethical comments that were pouring in on my social media accounts and other news portals.”

“Cyber bullying is not acceptable if it is happening with u also, Please speak up and expose those people taking the help of police and other law enforcement agencies which will help you to protect your fundamental rights. I am an actor by profession and my identity is not my father’s name when it comes my professional life. It’s the duty of an actor to get associated with brands and endorse them legally and lawfully. I have lodged an FIR against the news portal and every individual who came up to harass me and my family unethically. I hope this step of mine will help journalists, individuals and news portals to start creating an environment of positivity and not spread negative, misleading information!” she added.
