Aditya Tiwari, the fugitive rapper who had gone missing for over a week after posting a suicide note on social media on June 1 was traced by Delhi Police in Jabalpur on Wednesday.
Tiwari was putting up at his friend’s house in Jabalpur. According to police sources, he will be brought back to Delhi and questioned. His mother Deepa Tiwari had filed a missing complaint at Mehrauli police station on Friday.
Aditya Tiwari is popularly known as MC Kode in the capital’s underground hip-hop circuit. He is one of the founders of Spit Dope Inc, a collective that organises rap battles.
Atul Kumar Thakur, DCP (South) said that in her missing complaint Aditya’s mother said that his son was missing since last Wednesday. She had also mentioned that Aditya had posted a suicide note on Instagram after which his phone was switched-off. His mother waited for two days and then filed the missing complaint.
But the netizens found the old videos of Tiwari disgusting, derogatory and outright communal. What annoyed them more was the defence of his mother Deepa Tiwari, who found “nothing wrong with the ribald dialogues he uttered in the video.”
“Some miscreants started circulating a 66-year-old video of a rap battle of Aditya, who goes by MC Kode, on social media a few days back. Contents of the video might have hurt religious sentiments of some people. Trolls gave it a religious colour,” Deepa Tiwari told ANI.
Dr Monica tweeted: “His mother is as shameless as MC Koda himself!This guy has videos on record with “[email protected] your mother” “[email protected] your sister” and here the mother is playing the victim card by calling people trolls.”
