Bantwal, Feb 07, 2015: A youth hailing from B Mooda village in Bantwal has been booked by the police on the charges of creating an obscene image of Sadhwi Saraswathi and uploading it on Facebook.
The arrested person is Naufal and he is booked under Section 66 (A) of IT Act.
The VHP and Bhajrangdal had earlier filed a complaint in this regard. Sadhwi Saraswathi is expected to participate in the Hindu Samajotsava to be organised at the Nehru Maidan here on March 1 as part of the golden jubilee celebrations of the VHP.
The complainants alleged that the uploading of the obscene image was aimed at disrupting the proposed Hindu Samajotsava and said they will not be responsible in case of any untoward incident that may occur due to such developments. The complaint also urged for stern action against the accused.
