This incident comes less than a month after actress Shruti Seth came under similarly vicious sexist attacks on Twitter, also for criticising Prime Minister Modi's governance.

"If you truly wish to empower women I urge you to condemn this kind of hatred being spread in your name," Seth went on to write in an open letter to Modi about the sexism she witnessed his supporters display.

Activist Kavita Krishnan also fell victim to widespread misogynistic cyber-attacks in the last month after she took to Twitter to denounce a Modi initiative.
