Police detains woman CEO for maligning colleague

Mumbai, Oct 17: A 43-year-old woman CEO of a multinational company was detained for posting derogatory remarks about her 39-year-old colleague in the HR department on a consumer website, said the police.

The accused maligned the victim by calling her a sex pest. She posted that the victim had sex with a number of male colleagues, said cyber crime investigation cell.

A police officer said, "the victim, who is unmarried, told us that someone was posting comments about her character, or lack thereof, and that she was described as someone who frequently slept with her colleagues and 'spoiled' them. She said it all started when she found a change in the way her colleagues perceived her, so much so that she found it difficult to work with them. It was only when her friends and well-wishers asked her about the online posts that she realized what the matter was. She told us she was taken aback and did not know how to react."

He added that "it was found to have originated from an apartment in a residential complex in Goregaon (Mumbai). When we reached there, we were shocked to find that the house belonged to the CEO of the firm where the victim worked. Initially, the CEO was not cooperating. She accused us of harassing her. But we had technical proof. When we confronted her with it and emphasized that the IP address belonged to her own PC, she surrendered."

Police also revealed that "In a written apology, she said she was jealous as the victim was getting quick promotions. So, she started writing online posts, the website being one that is visited by private companies, to do background checks on potential recruits. She wanted the management to take note of the posts and initiate action against the victim."
