Delhi police lodges 100 FIRs over ‘objectionable’ posters against PM Modi, 6 arrested 

Six people, including owners of two printing presses, have been arrested in connection with the incident.

Over 100 FIRs have been registered by the Delhi Police after thousands of ‘objectionable’ posters were put across the city targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi. 

In an operation on Tuesday, the police took down nearly 2,000 posters that read “Modi hate, desh bachao” in several parts of the national capital. 

In the operation, the Delhi Police seized over 10,000 posters from a van that was intercepted after coming out from the Aam Aadmi Party headquarters on DDU Marg. However, the name of the printing press did not feature in any of these posters. 

Special CP Deependra Pathak said, “Delhi Police registered 100 FIRs while 6 people were arrested for objectionable posters, including those against PM Narendra Modi across the city. The posters didn’t have details of the printing press. The FIR was filed under sections of the Printing Press Act and Defacement of property Act.”

Six people, including owners of two printing presses, have been arrested in connection with the incident, the police added. Further investigation is underway in the case.

A tweet posted by the Aam Aadmi Party read:

“The dictatorship of the Modi government is at its peak. What is so objectionable in this poster that Modi ji filed 100 FIRs? PM Modi, you probably do not know, but India is a democratic country. So scared of one poster! Why?”

The Aam Aadmi Party has announced a protest against the same at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar tomorrow.
