BJP Cries 'Emergency in Karnataka' After Party Sympathisers Get Arrested for Fake News on HDK

Two people were arrested in Bengaluru on Friday for allegedly sharing morphed pictures of Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy, the Bengaluru Central Zone police said. This is the third such incident in two weeks.

In what seems to be an ongoing crackdown on fake news, photo-shopped documents and pictures are being circulated on social media, particularly with reference to politicians.
Now that polling in both phases of Karnataka constituencies are over, politicians from the JDS-Congress coalition government have started filing criminal cases against instances of fake news being spread against them on social media. 
"CM's media secretary HB Dinesh had registered an FIR about a morphed photo of the CM being used in some social media pages. We have as such arrested two persons — Gangadhar, the correspondent of UK Suddi based in Bagalkot — and 'Chowkidar' Ajith Shetty Heranje, the accused number two who shared such posts on Facebook," said DCP Central D Devaraj.
