FIR filed against MLA Binny: Explained
Former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) member and legislator from Delhi's Lakshmi Nagar assembly Vinod Kumar Binny was on Sunday booked for allegedly levelling false charges at former party colleague Alka Lamba.

What is the case?

In her complaint, Lamba has alleged that Binny, the Lakshmi Nagar MLA, had falsely alleged on social networking site, Facebook, that she was running a sex racket at her house.

As per AAP leader, "Binny posted a comment on his Facebook account that in a police raid at my house, two girls were arrested for sex trade."

Lamba, who joined AAP in December last year, said that Binny was trying to defame her by making false allegations.

She had on Friday night lodged a written complaint against Binny and 37 others at Kotla Mubarkpur police station in South Delhi.

What is Binny saying?

Refuting from the allegations Binny, however, said somebody had created a fake account in his name with an intention to malign him. According to the rebel AAP MLA he had on September 19 filed a complaint with the Ashoknagar police station SHO about the existence of a fake account.

He even blamed AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal behind this.

"Someone has created a fake account in my name with an intention to malign me. Two months back, I reported the matter to the police commissioner, crime branch and local police. It is a conspiracy by AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal. I don't even know Alka Lamba," Binny said.

Binny also said that he would file a defamation suit against Lamba.

What is police saying?

Based on her allegations, Cyber Cell has registered an FIR against Binny under Section 66A (sending offensive messages through communication service) of IT ACT and Sections 354D (stalking) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of IPC. In the FIR, 37 other persons have also been booked for the same offence.

"We are investigating the allegations and will soon interrogate Binny," said a senior police officer.

What is Alka Lamba saying?

"I will fight for justice till my last breath. Binny and 37 persons, who belong to a particular party, were continuously making derogatory remarks against me (on social media)," Lamba said.

"Fearing prosecution, they (the accused) are now deleting their abusive comments posted on my Facebook page. People should come forward and take screenshots as proof and send them to me. This just shows how they disrespect women," the AAP leader tweeted.

Who is Binny?

39-year-old Binny was expelled in January this year by AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal for engaging in anti-party activity. He had called Kejriwal a ‘liar' and a ‘dictator'.

FIR was also filed against Alka Lamba in the past

An FIR was filed against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Alka Lamba in Lucknow for allegedly sharing the picture of the Lucknow rape victim, who was brutally raped and stabbed to death, on a social networking site.

Lamba had allegedly shared a picture of the gang rape victim on July 19 this year on her Facebook account which was liked by at least 2094 people.
