Pune police had arrested 1 and booked 12 others for making controversial comments on
historical and political figures of the country. The FIR was lodged by akash chandrakant
shinde(24), vice president of the yuva sena and private contractor by profession. He said,“I had
been keeping track of posts made by some accounts based on 51 screenshots
collected two-three months ago. Their posts were earlier innocuous, and we ignored
them. Recently the comments got very offensive and sexual in nature. Some of these
people are in politics, some are social workers, and some are on the internet simply as
trolls. One of the men from Jalna ran a Facebook group and a page where he posted
offensive pictures and content. We decided that it is time to register an FIR”.
While the individual captured has been blamed for posting questionable substance
about an authentic figure, 12 others booked for the situation were accused of posting
messages about boss clergyman Uddhav Thackeray, delegate CM Ajit Pawar and NCP
president Sharad Pawar. Swarup Pralhad Bhosale (35), an occupant of Sai Complex in
Bhilarewadi, Pune,was captured at 8pm on Wednesday.“We arrested him from Pune.
He had made some sexual comments about Shivaji Maharaj on Twitter. The others
booked in the case have made posts on various social media platforms about political
leaders and have made caste-based comments to incite divisive feelings,” said senior
inspector Dagdu Hake of the cyber-police station in Pune.
A case under Sections 153(a), 295(a), 469, 499500, 504, 505(2), and 34 of Indian Penal Code,
alongside Section 67 of the Information Technology Act has been enlisted at the digital police
headquarters against the 13.
