CRPF jawan arrested over social media posts against PM Modi, Rajnath


Guwahati, Oct 16, 2017: Police have arrested a CRPF jawan for making objectionable comments on social networking sites against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Rajnath Singh from Jorhat district of Assam.

Jorhat Superintendent of Police P.K. Bhuyan said on Monday that Pankaj Mishra was arrested from the Central Reserve Police Force camp at Rowriah based on an FIR registered by Battalion Commander B. Behra.

Bhuyan said that a case was registered against Mishra under different sections of the IT Act.

Mishra was produced in a court and remanded to judicial custody, police said.

Mishra, who hails from Bihar, had not only made objectionable comments on the social media against Modi and Singh but also accused the CRPF top brass of using the jawans for their personal chores.

He was suspended after his posts went viral on social media.

Apart from this incident, Mishra had earlier posted on Facebook some videos about a Naxalite attack on a CRPF camp in Durgapur and was later transferred to Jorhat.
