On Wednesday, the Birbhum district court rejected a bail application of BJP IT cell secretary Tarun Sengupta who has been in jail for a month after he uploaded a fake video of a Muslim police officer beating a Hindu man.
Adg (CID) Rajesh Kumar told The Indian Express, “His bail prayer has been rejected today for the second time by the lower court Birbhum.”
Sengupta’s fake Facebook video was accompanied by an image of chief minister Mamata Banerjee. The post read as: “is Birbhum a part of Bangladesh or Pakistan? Nishat Parvez SP and ADSP Farhay Abbas ordered the brutal lathi-charge and serious thrashing on the peaceful Hanuman Bhakts .”
“Both these Muslim IPS officer were performing their religious duties of destroying the Kafors and idol worshippers without even thinking duties of their service.Birbhum is next Bangladesh.”
The CID arrested him in July after they noticed the post and found it fake. In his post, he targetted two Muslim IPS officers and claimed fake charges on them.
