The constable, Jamal Hussein, was arrested on Sunday afternoon for sharing the Facebook post, reported, quoting Inspector General of Police Puneet Rastogi. Saikat Talapatra, the journalist, was arrested in the evening.
Anupam Paul, the person whose Facebook post they shared, was booked on Friday and remains on the run. Paul was booked for defamation and criminal conspiracy after he was found allegedly running a fake campaign on social media about the divorce suit.
In an angry post on Facebook on Friday, Niti Deb, the chief minister’s wife, denied the rumours of the divorce. The chief minister has described the rumours as a “deep rooted conspiracy” to tarnish his image, PTI reported.
Advocate Ashwani Jha, whose name was mentioned in the document shared on social media, told The Indian Express that it was about a divorce suit filed by a man residing in Delhi, and had nothing to with Biplab Deb.
