A journalist has been booked for allegedly what police called “an objectionable post” against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath on social media.

An FIR was registered against Prashant Kanojia at Hazratganj police station for "objectionable comments against the CM and tried to malign his image".

When contacted by PTI, a senior police official initially said that the journalist had been arrested, but later denied it, saying that police were questioning the journalist.

Kanojia had shared a video on Twitter and Facebook where a woman is seen speaking to reporters of various media organisations outside the CM office claiming that she had sent a marriage proposal to the CM.

The verified Twitter handle of Kanojia @PJkanojia said that he is alumnus of IIMC and Mumbai University and is associated with some media organisations. PTI
