Pune | Aug 22, 2012 :: Four persons have been arrested by the cyber crime branch of city police in connection with inflammatory SMSes circulated here to allegedly foment violence against the north eastern residents.
The SMSes had allegedly incited the recent violent attacks on the north eastern students and workers that led to an exodus of the affected people to their home states, police said.
So far, the Pune police have arrested four persons for allegedly circulating objectionable SMS messages with the aim of creating enmity between two religions. The police identified the suspects as 1. Arif Munnawar Khan (47) of Bibvewadi, 2. Mohammed Afzal Abdul Rehman Khan (38) of Bhagyoday Nagar, Kondhwa, 3. Imran Irfan Khan (39) of Sanjay Park, Viman Nagar and 4. Sarfaraz Mohammed Iqbal Khan (32) of Mamta Nagar, Sangvi.
They have been booked under Section 153 (a) of the Indian Penal Code for creating enmity between two groups on grounds of religion and Section 66 (a) (c) of the Information Technology Act.
Two offences were registered at the Cantonment and Kondhwa police stations after the attacks on Northeast students and working professionals in the city.
Around 15 youths from the Northeast were attacked or threatened in Pune since August 8 and later thousands left the city.
Investigations revealed that rumours spread through SMSes and a doctored MMS clip had triggered the incidents.
The cyber cell of Pune police found that four suspects were involved in circulating these objectionable SMSes. Deputy Commissioner of Police (cyber cell) Sanjay Shinde said, “All four suspects are well-educated and are employed at different private firms. One of them holds a postgraduate degree, Masters in Computers Management (MCM).”
[But their Islamic attitude, fundamental education, zeal for frenzy Jihad made them obstinate to wage a war through a cyber conspiracy against the general people, students of North East as well the peace loving people of other Indian cities.
In the recent Islamic riots and hooliganism in Ranchi, Bareilly, Bangalore, Lucknow, Mumbai, Pune and other places, the so called Indian Muslims upsurged a Jihad against the Indian Nation and Majority Hindus. They exploited Hindu women (including female constable on duty), hurt Hindus ruthlessly, spread panic and spoiled 1000 crores of public properties. ~ Ed. HE.]
The suspects were arrested on Monday. They were produced in the Cantonment court on Tuesday and remanded in police custody till August 23.
Police informed the court that the suspects, after getting the objectionable SMSes on their cellphones, circulated it. Police said objectionable SMSes were found in the cellphones used by all the four suspects. Police sought custody of the suspects to probe from where they had got these SMSes and to whom they had passed it on.
Police said a probe is on to identify the masterminds behind the objectionable SMSes and MMS clips. They added that the details of the calls made from the cellphones of the arrested suspects are also being probed.
DCP Shinde added the MMS clips that were circulated widely was “doctored and fabricated.” “We have got the report from experts about the doctored video clip,” he said.
