Thiruvananthapuram: The police on Monday said they have questioned more than 100 people in Kerala capital Thiruvananthapuram and nearby areas for allegedly posting obscene remarks on social networking site Facebook against a Mahila Congress leader for speaking in defence of Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman PJ Kurien in connection to the Suryanelli gangrape case.
Mahila Congress leader and advocate Bindu Krishna had filed the complaint on the Facebook posts.
"Some people attacked my privacy by posting this comment...it was a highly defamatory comment so I filed a complaint with the Kerala chief minister," Bindu told NDTV.
Meanwhile, a fresh hearing in the Suryanelli gangrape case will begin in the Kerala High Court on Monday.
The court will also hear the bail pleas of nine accused in the case.
A new bench comprising Justices KT Shankaran and ML Joseph Francis will hear the case.
Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy earlier rejected re-investigation into the Suryanelli gangrape case.
