Unidentified senior police officers told the newspaper that a man, identified as Lalit Yadav, was arrested on June 9 after they received a complaint from Congress workers. Yadav was booked under Section 67(A) of the Information Technology Act, which deals with online obscenity. Yadav is a resident of Saragaon in Raipur district, according to PTI.
“These comments were not critical,” said Superintendent of Police Arif Sheikh. “They were abusive and objectionable. Which is why that section has been applied after investigations found the allegations correct.”
Yadav reportedly criticized the chief minister for his comments on the Skywalk project in Raipur. Baghel had said public sentiment was against the project worth Rs 70 crore, which was started by the previous Bharatiya Janata Party government, and residents were being consulted about its future. The Congress had halted the skywalk’s construction after coming to power in December.
