Boy held for creating fake profile of MP Chief Minister on FB

Bhopal, Jul 25: A teenaged boy was arrested from neighbouring Indore district by city police for allegedly creating a fake profile of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on popular social networking site Facebook and uploading cartoons and controversial photos on it.

The matter came to light sometime back and Chouhan had himself filed a complaint in this regard with the police for investigating the matter, Bhopal's Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Adarsh Katiyar told PTI today.

A police team had then contacted Facebook's India office on the issue, but when they did not reveal any information citing privacy policies of the social-networking site, Bhopal police sought the help of Interpol following which the site's head office informed that it was created at an Indore-based cyber cafe situated in the Malharganj area of the city.

Police then zeroed on the cafe and arrested the teenager, a student of Class XII yesterday, he said. Since the boy was a minor, his name is not being revealed.

The boy was brought to Bhopal and a case under various sections of the cyber laws was registered against him, Katiyar said.

Police sources said some of the photographs and cartoons on the profile are communal in nature while others make fun of Prime Minister and senior Congress leaders.
