Open threat to PM Modi...Social media user got arrested!

In a shocking development, a 43-year-old man from Puducherry had written a Facebook post saying that he is ready to kill Prime Minister Narendra Modi if someone offers him Rs 5 crore. After the appalling post came to light, the police had arrested him and booked him under appropriate sections. 

According to reports, the man is a resident of Aryankuppam village in Puducherry and works in real estate. He took to Facebook and publicly vowed that he is ready to kill the Prime Minister for Rs 5 crore. His post went viral as soon as he had published following which it went to the attention of the law enforcement agency. 

The post had caught the attention of a cab driver who immediately contacted the police and informed them about the plot. The reports say Thangadurai, the cab driver, had come across the post on Thursday and noticed that the post vowing to kill the Prime Minister was published by the profile in the name of Sathya Sathya.

The post read, "Ready to kill Modi, who is ready to give Rs 5 crore". Shocked to see the post, Thangadurai had immediately informed the police. The police had launched the probe, traced the Facebook account, and arrested the man responsible for the post. On further investigation, it came to light that the man had written posts that had reportedly insulted several other leaders and he had published the posts with the motive of inciting communal violence. 

Following the arrest, the police had booked him under sections 505 (1) and 505 (2) of the Indian Penal Code for making statements of instigating enmity. It must be noted that there have been several threats to political leaders in recent times and most of them were through social media. Last November, a 16-year-old boy in Uttar Pradesh had threatened Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. 

The teenager had sent a message threatening the Chief Minister on the WhatsApp number of the 112 emergency service of the police department following which an FIR was registered at the Sushant Golf City police station. The Assistant Commissioner of Gosaiganj said that the teenager had threatened to blow up the Chief Minister. 

The police had recovered the mobile phone and SIM card used for the threat and the boy was arrested. A police officer said that the boy was brought to Lucknow from Agra and he was later produced before the Juvenile Justice Board following which the boy was sent to a juvenile home.
