Express press service

KOLLAM: Truth can be stranger than fiction. No one knows this better than Sajitha of Kottarakara. How else can she explain the electric fans turning on by themselves and her TV exploding, after receiving WhatsApp messages predicting the same?

Now the 32-year-old, who lives with her parents and child, spends every day in constant fear as she believes every activity in her home is controlled from the outside.

Sajitha told TNIE that she’s been getting creepy WhatsApp messages — about everything going on in her house — from her mother Vilasini’s phone for the past six months. She thinks her mother’s phone, as well as hers, have been hacked.

“I contacted cyber police, but no case was filed,” she said. On Tuesday, police installed security features on his phone. The scary messages have now ceased. However, Sajitha said she was still scared.

“We live in constant fear. Our phones have been hacked. The electrical equipment in our house is externally controlled. Until Tuesday, I was getting intimidating and scary WhatsApp messages from my mom’s phone. One of these messages said that my television was going to explode soon. And it happened. I have had such disturbing experiences over the past six months,” she said. According to Sajitha, the strange happenings started almost six months ago when she bought a new phone.

Soon after, the phone started malfunctioning. It would turn off and turn back on by itself. The device details would change automatically. “My call list was going to change. Abusive messages would be sent from my phone to relatives and close friends. Initially, I thought my phone was having issues,” she said. Sajitha then changed her phone. “However, the problems continued,” she said. She approached the police and the cybercrime unit. However, no appropriate action was reportedly taken. The stream of abusive and intimidating messages continued. The family became frightened when electronic equipment in the house began to be controlled from the outside.

“I decided to use my mother’s phone and put my SIM card in it. After that I started getting strange whatsapp messages from my phone. I would get a message saying my fan is going to stop, my TV is going to explode and the electric meter is going to explode. Soon these things would happen. My father, Rajan, is an electrician. He examined our devices, but found nothing out of the ordinary.

We changed the wiring. But the scary incidents didn’t stop,” Sajitha said. On November 8, she approached the cyber wing of the police in Kottarakkara. However, officials refused to register a case. Later, she approached Kollam Rural SP and MP Kodikunnil Suresh. On Tuesday, cyberpolice inspected the entire house. However, officials found nothing suspicious. “I think there’s something wrong when I’m inside the house.

I don’t get these messages when I’m out,” she added. Investigator Elias P George said the phones of Sajitha and her mother had been checked but police found nothing suspicious. “We received a complaint. At this time, there is no evidence,” he said.
