Read Time:36 Second

Police in Mumbai’s Malad (east) suburb arrested a 30-year-old man on August 21 for allegedly using derogatory content on Prophet Mohammed as his WhatsApp status.

Salim Choudhari, a lawyer, told the Dindoshi police on August 19 that he had learnt about the “derogatory” status–photos and a video–from an acquaintance. The accused, a real estate agent, was produced before a magistrate’s court and remanded in police custody for two days.

Choudhari attached screenshots of the content along with his complaint, based on which a first information report was registered on charges under Information Technology Act sections 295A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage reli­gious feelings) and 67A (transmitting material containing sexually explicit act).
