Amritsar, April 4
Controversial Hindu Shiv Sena leader Sudhir Suri was arrested by the rural police for making communal and objectionable remarks against the Tablighi Jamaat community on a social platform here on late Friday evening.
The case was registered following an anonymous complaint received in the complaint box for allegedly hurting the sentiments of people and thereby creating law and order problem.
SSP, Amritsar rural, Vikram Jeet Duggal, said he made some objectionable remarks on his Facebook account. The matter was investigated by Jandiala SHO Rashpal Singh and a case under Sections 115, 153-A, 295-A and 505 (2) of the IPC was registered against him. Subsequently, he was nabbed from his residence.
He was produced before the duty magistrate on Friday evening and sent to Hoshiarpur jail. Ranjit Singh, personal assistant to Suri, however, termed it as a false and fabricated case. He said the said Facebook account did not belong to Suri. “How can the police register an FIR on the basis of a suggestion box complaint and without proper investigation?” he asked, adding that the police did not even bother to record the statement of Suri. He said it was a fabricated case to harass him and his family members.
