+1 vote

Members  of Arappor Iyakkam - a citizen action group - alleged that cases had been foisted on them to silence them.An FIR was filed against the organisation and four of its office-bearers for provoking riots and hate, according to a police official from the cyber cell wing of the Central Crime Branch.
“They have been charged  under section 153 and 505 (1)(b)(c),” the official told Express.
The  case has been filed in response to a video released by the organisation a few days ago, alleging police atrocities against protestors and demanding a free space such as Jantar Mantar in New Delhi to stage protest peacefully in Chennai.
