Arrest for Facebook posting on protest against Delhi rape


New Delhi, Dec 31: While telecom companies offer discounts on data plans to access social media websites like Facebook and Twitter as people are expressing like never before, the administration is becoming edgy and reacting negatively.

There was also a discussion on the IT Act in Rajya Sabha and Section 66A, which had come under attack after arrest of two girls from Palghar, Maharashtra.

Last week, the Delhi police arrested a person for urging protests against the Delhi gang-rape incident, on Facebook. Tejinder Pal Singh Bagga had appealed to people on Facebook to protest against the police and the government at India Gate. He received a call from the office of the ACP asking him to remove the post. When Tejinder declined, the police on Thursday arrested him from his house and kept him in custody for three days at the Tilak Nagar police station.

The Facebook appeal was to people to join ‘Hang the Rapist March'. Tejinder was released on Saturday and he asked not to leave his house, a virtual house arrest, and two constables were stationed at Bagga's residence to keep a close watch over his activities.
