A team of Rajasthan Police is in Noida in Uttar Pradesh to arrest TV ‘journalist’ Aman Chopra for allegedly promoting enmity between different groups and hurting religious sentiments, NDTV reported on Sunday
According to Dungarpur Kotwali police station, an FIR was registered against Chopra by a man alleging that the journalist gave false and fictitious details by showing that the demolition of a temple in Rajgarh of Alwar district was done by the Rajasthan government as an act of revenge following the demolition drive in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri.
Three FIRs have been registered against Chopra, including in Bundi, Alwar and Dungarpur districts under various sections pertaining to sedition, outraging religious sentiments, promoting enmity between two groups, and under the IT Act on April 23.
Chopra got a stay from the Rajasthan High Court on his arrest in two FIRs registered against him in Bundi and Alwar districts, but is facing an arrest warrant following a local court order in Dungarpur district, police said.
“Our team is camping in Noida and searching all possible locations to trace him. Yesterday also our team went to Chopra’s house but he was not found there and his residence was locked,” Dungarpur SP Sudhir Joshi said.
He said the high court order does not mention the FIR registered in Dungarpur and a stay was given on his arrest in FIRs registered in Bundi and Alwar districts. (NDTV)
