Maharashtra: Man arrested for obscene post about PM Modi

MUMBAI: A man from Parbhani has been arrested for posting an objectionable comment about the prime minister Narendra Modi along with an obscene image, police said on Friday.

Prashant Dambale (28), a poultry entrepreneur and resident of Selu, more than 500 km from here, was held on Thursday after he allegedly posted an objectionable comment about Modi along with a photo.

The publication came to the warning of the police agencies since the image contained child pornography, said a police officer.

The IP address was traced to Parbhani, after which the police were intimidated and Dambale was arrested under section 67B of the Information Technology Law, the official said.

The section deals with the punishment for publishing or transmitting material that represents children in explicit sexual acts, etc. in electronic form.
