Pune: 54 booked for ‘objectionable’ social media posts against PM Modi, Fadnavis

Primarily based on a criticism filed by a BJP activist, Pune Metropolis Police have booked 54 individuals in an offence relating to posting of alleged derogatory content material towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi, former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and different leaders of the social gathering.

Advocate Pradeep Gawade, state secretary of BJP’s youth wing, had filed a criticism on the cyber police station of Pune Police on this case on Could 10. “We might be naming the 54 individuals as accused in an earlier FIR lodged by the BJP office-bearer Vineet Bajpayee,” mentioned Senior Police Inspector Dagadu Hake of the cyber police station.

A few days in the past, police had booked two NCP youth wing leaders, Mohsin Shaikh and Shivajirao Javir, following a criticism filed by Bajpayee for allegedly posting morphed photos of PM Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on social media.

Earlier than that, on Could 4, a primary data report was lodged towards 13 individuals for allegedly defamatory and objectionable posts and messages on Fb, Twitter and WhatsApp about a number of political leaders together with Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, NCP chief Sharad Pawar, Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and others.

Now, Gawde has filed a criticism towards 54 individuals for allegedly posting objectionable content material on social media about PM Modi, former CM Fadnavis, his spouse Amruta Fadnavis, Union Minister Smriti Irani and BJP’s state chief Chandrakant Patil.
