The local police have booked former AAP MLA from Delhi, Jarnail Singh, for alleged blasphemous social media post against Hindu community.

A case was registered under Sections 295-A of the IPC and 67 of the IT Act following a complaint by Rani Ka Bagh resident Gaurav Sharma.

He sparked a row after posting blasphemous and disrespectful comments against Hindu gods. He had, however, claimed that the comments were accidentally posted by his son during his online class. The party has suspended him from primary membership.

Gaurav Sharma, the complainant in the case, registered with the Cantonment police here said the post had hurt sentiments of the Hindu community and was not only detrimental for the brotherhood of Hindu and Sikhs but would also deteriorate the peaceful atmosphere of the country.

Sharma, an automobile spare parts exporter and member of the Mata Lal Devi Sewa Manch, said being a responsible person and former MLA, Jarnail Singh should not have indulged in such act which could hurt the peaceful atmosphere in the country. He said therefore we decided to lodge a complaint against him.
