A woman's ex-husband was arrested on charges of creating her fake ID on Facebook, using offencive language on the social networking site for defaming her and for impersonation, criminal intimidation and defamation.

Police said on Wednesday that the accused Hemant Chowdhary was arrested on Monday under Sections 66-A (sending offencive or false messages through communication service), 66-D (cheating by personation by using computer resource) of the IT Act and Sections 500 (punishment for defamation) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC.

Chowdhary was arrested after his ex-wife complained to the police and a case was registered by the Cyber Crime Cell. Local DSP Ashwani Kumar also helped with the investigations.

Since the offence was bailable, Chowdhary was later released on bail, police said.
