A 35-year-old former employee of Wipro/Credit Suisse has been booked by Pune city police for allegedly sending threat emails to kill his woman boss of the company. The victim has also accused him of defaming her through his posts on social media and emails to colleagues. Based on the complaint from the 34-year-old woman, Hinjewadi police have booked Sudipta Roy Choudhury, a native of West Bengal, who currently resides in Hinjewadi.

According to the FIR, the incident took place between February 18 and July 19 this year. “After Wipro company sacked him, he held me responsible for it and began circulating defamatory messages. He even sent an email containing obscene language against me to the director of Credit Suisse. He has also threatened to shoot me and my colleagues. Besides, he has sent emails to my acquaintances and also circulated obscene and defamatory messages about me on social media,” the woman stated in her complaint.

Police have charged Choudhury for offences under Sections 354 (stalking), 500 (punishment for defamation) and 506 (2) (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Choudhury, on his Twitter account, posted several messages alleging that he was not being hired by any company because of Wipro, Credit Suisse and Collabera companies. He has narrated that he had been rewarded for his work, but some persons destroyed his career. The man alleged that he was harassed because he had refused to have sexual relationship with the complainant.

Last month, Wipro Limited had also sent him legal notice, which he had shared on Twitter, to desist from sharing confidential information about the company.

On the other hand, Choudhury had sought damages from these companies for defaming him.
