Twitter India head gets temporary relief from Karnataka HC in Ghaziabad incident

Bengaluru/IBNS: In a temporary relief for Twitter India head Manish Maheshwari, the Karnataka High Court has stated it will hear the matter related to the video of a Muslim man allegedly assaulted in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad on Saturday, media reports said.

Twitter India's Managing Director Manish Maheshwari was earlier asked to report to a police station at Loni border near Delhi and get his statement recorded within seven days.

As it was reported, an elderly Muslim man, named Abdul Samad, was allegedly assaulted by a group of young men, who also cut his beard and forced him to chant "Jay Shri Ram" and "Vande Mataram", while he was on his way to to a mosque to offer his prayers.

According to several media reports, one of the attackers, a young man in white full sleeve t-shirt and blue sweatpants, threatened the victim with a knife which he also used to chop off his beard.

Police have turned down any communal angle to the incident, stating the old man was attacked both by Muslim and Hindu men as they were upset over amulets they had purchased from him.

Senior police superintendent, Ghaziabad, Amit Pathak said Samad did not mention that he was forced to chant Jai Shree Ram or chop off his beard in the FIR registered on Jun 7.
