A software professional, who allegedly created a fake Facebook profile of a woman who refused to marry him, was arrested by the police after he landed in Bangalore from London, the CID said here in a press release on Thursday.

CID cyber crime wing SP U. Rammohan said the arrested man M. Venkata Naga Siva Prasad of Bapatla in Guntur had fallen in love with his childhood classmate and proposed to her.

But, she declined the proposal following which he developed a grudge against her. He allegedly created a fake Facebook profile in her name and also sent derogatory emails to her fiancé to defame her.

He had also morphed some of her pictures and posted them on the Facebook page.

The investigators also seized his laptop, mobile phone and other incriminating documents and sent him for judicial remand.
