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

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 being controlled from the outside.

Sajitha told TNIE that over the past six months she has been receiving scary messages on WhatsApp from her mum Vilasini’s phone – about everything going on at her house. She believes both her mother’s phone and her own were hacked.

“I contacted the cyber police but no case was filed,” she said. On Tuesday, the police installed some security features on their phone. The scary news has now stopped. However, Sajitha said she was still scared.

“We lived in constant fear. Our phones have been hacked. Electrical devices in our house are externally controlled. Up until Tuesday, I was receiving intimidating and scary WhatsApp messages from my mom’s phone. One such message said that my TV would soon explode. And it happened. I’ve had such disturbing experiences over the past six months,” she said. According to Sajitha, the strange events began almost six months ago when she bought a new phone.

Shortly thereafter, the phone began to ring. It would turn itself off and on again. Details on the device would change automatically. “My call log would change. Offensive messages were sent from my phone to relatives and close friends. At first I thought my phone was having problems,” she said. Sajitha then switched phones. “The problems continued, however,” she said. She contacted the police and the cybercrime unit. Apparently, however, no adequate action was taken. The stream of abusive and intimidating messages continued. The family became afraid when electronic devices in the house were controlled by others.

“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 that my fan would stop, my TV would explode, and the electric meter would explode. Soon these things would happen. My father Rajan is an electrician. He checked our devices but found nothing.

We changed the wiring. But the scary incidents didn’t stop,” Sajitha said. On November 8, she contacted the Cyber ​​Department of the Kottarakkara Police Department. However, officials refused to register a case. She later approached the Kollam rural SP and Kodikunnil Suresh, MP. On Tuesday, the cyber police inspected the entire house. However, officers could not find anything suspicious. “I think something’s wrong when I’m in the house.

I don’t get these messages when I’m outside,” she added. Investigating officer Elias P. George said Sajitha’s and her mother’s phones were checked, but police found nothing suspicious. “We received a complaint. So far there is no evidence,” he said.
