Santhosh, a resident of Keezh Iruppu village here, was arrested by the cyber crime branch for his social media posts linking ministers in the state to key accused Nirmala Devi, assistant professor at the Devanga Arts College in Aruppukottai. 
Police said they had studied his posts on Facebook and confirmed that they were defamatory in nature before arresting him. 
Santhosh, a diploma holder, has been taken to Chennai for further interrogation, officials said. 
Nirmala Devi was arrested on April 16, a day after an audio clip went viral on the social media, in which she purportedly sought to persuade girls to consider extending sexual favours to senior officials of the Madurai Kamaraj University, to which the college is affiliated.
