Two held for social media posts against CMs 


Close on the heels of the arrest of three journalists in Uttar Pradesh for posting a video against Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, two persons have been arrested in Assam for giving posts in social media against Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb. They are not journalists but members or supports of the ruling BJP.

The arrested include member of the BJP's social media cell in Assam who was alleged to have made communal remarks and insults on Sarbananda Sonowal in posts on Facebook and a BJP supporter who was accused of making defamatory posts against Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb on the same social media platform.

At least three others were also picked up for questioning from across the state on similar allegations.
