JAIPUR/NEW DELHI: The Rajasthan Police have lodged a case against cyber harassers for issuing threats to a Jaipur woman on Twitter and later circulating her pictures.
The harassment began on Sunday and could only be resolved by Monday after she posted an online plea for help to Union minister for external affairs Sushma Swaraj, Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje, and Union minister for women and child development Maneka Gandhi.
A case has been lodged under Section 67 and 66 D of the IT Act, 2000 at the Pratapnagar police station in the Pink City.
"We need to trace some IP addresses," said Sanjay Agarwal, commissioner of police, Jaipur.
She went into the final with a prayer on her lips and a dream in her heart; courage is anyway synonymous with her name by now.
She knew that she could compete with the best and even surprise them - not by luck but by sheer daring and perfection of her art. Guilia Steinberger of Switzerland, who had performed before her, was leading with a score of 15.216.
Dipa knew that the two gymnasts after her - Maria Paseka of Russia and Simone Biles of the US - were more experienced and could trump her. She started with her first routine, the Tsukahara 720 - any vault that has a handspring with 14-12 turn on to the vault table into a salto backwards is classified as a Tsukahara vault.
She then flashed that sweet, toothy child-like smile, and they were all charmed.
This daredevil, pint-sized package of sheer grace, balance, strength and power - she is just four feet, 10 inch in her socks - had the gymnastics world mesmerized by her performance on the vault here on Sunday.
