Yuva Morcha leader booked for obscene message against IAS officer
A district leader of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) was booked for allegedly posting an "obscene" message against a woman IAS officer on a social media platform in Chhattisgarh's Raigarh, police said on Tuesday.
A case was registered last night at Sarangarh police station against Prakash Agrawal for allegedly posting an obscene comment about Raigarh's Collector Shammi Abidi on a messaging platform, a police official said.
The accused has not yet been arrested, he said.
On May 21, Abidi was transferred from Kanker district to Raigarh. On the same day, Agrawal, Raigarh district vice-president of the BJP's youth wing, allegedly posted the message in local Chhattisgarhi language along with the IAS officer's picture, commenting over her transfer, he said.
However, the accused immediately posted another message apologizing for his act citing that it was committed by mistake, the official said.
The screenshot of the comment went viral on social media, following which the group admin, a local Congress leader, complained to police, the official said.
