According to the police, a guy in Mumbai has been arrested for allegedly making disparaging remarks and making up stories against the chief minister of Maharashtra, Eknath Shinde, and his deputy, Devendra Fadnavis. The individual, incidentally, was detained earlier this year for disparaging Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari.
Pradeep Bhalekar, the defendant, resides in Malad (East).
He wrote a two-page handwritten letter to the top court on his Twitter account early on Sunday. He criticised Shinde and Fadnavis and made false accusations against them. He also claimed that he frequently receives false arrest warrants and threats as a result of speaking out against them.
While keeping an eye on social media, a police officer from the cyber police station (north area) discovered the tweets. In response, the Samta Nagar police station registered a FIR under sections 153 A and B for inciting animosity between various groups, 500 (defamation), 504 (intentional insult), and 505 (2) (public mischief with intent to cause, or which is likely to cause, fear or alarm to the public) of the Indian Penal Code. He later filed a complaint with the station (IPC). The registration of the FIR was confirmed by a police official from the Samta Nagar police station, who also stated that Bhalekar is sought for in the matter.
