A youth, who allegedly flirted with girls and sent messages to women Congress leaders on behalf of Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi after creating his fake Facebook account, was arrested from his home in Naraingarh well past Monday midnight by a police team from Madhya Pradesh.
The cyber cell of MP police, which had received a complaint about an FB account in the name of Rahul Gandhi four months ago, zeroed in on Ankit, 19, a student of B A first year.
Acting on the complaint of Pankaj Chaturvedi, a spokesperson of MP wing of Congress party, Bhopal police had registered a case against an unidentified person for allegedly sending messages to leaders and workers of women Congress as well as girls by creating the fake FB account.
MP police spent two days in Naraingarh and interrogated Ankit following which he was released on bail, according to an official of Naraingarh police that was assisting their counterparts from MP in the case.
Satpal Singh, SHO Naraingarh, told TOI, “The MP police did not take the youth along with them. He (Ankit) will have to appear before MP police as and when his presence is required for further investigation. We can not say much about the interrogation carried out by MP police as our role was confined to assisting them.”
Rajender Kumar Mishra, cyber cell in charge, Bhopal, who was in the team that reached Naraingarh, said, “With the arrest of Ankit, the case has almost been solved.”
