Hello Sir,
I agree with your point, but even after warning that person, situation remains same. We can block the number but person is still sharing bad 'status' to outer world which is harming the reputation of other person's character.

Thanks.

It is a punishable offence.
Cyber crimes can involve criminal activities that are traditional in nature, such as theft, fraud, forgery, defamation and mischief, all of which are subject to the Indian Penal Code. The abuse of computers has also given birth to a gamut of new age crimes that are addressed by the Information Technology Act, 2000.
Any person who sends by any means of a computer resource any information that is grossly offensive or has a menacing character; or any information which he knows to be false, but for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience, danger, obstruction, insult shall be punishable with imprisonment.
