Delhi Police registers case over doctored video of Amit Shah advocating abolition of reservation

| @indiablooms | 29 Apr 2024, 12:44 pm

New Delhi/IBNS: The Delhi Police on Sunday registered a case over a doctored video showing Union Home Minister Amit Shah speaking in favour of abolishing reservations for Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes, media reports said.

The doctored video prompted the Union Home Ministry to file a complaint with the police.

In response to the complaint, police registered a First Information Report (FIR) on Sunday.

The country's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has accused the Telangana Congress of altering Shah's remarks to misrepresent him.

On April 27, Malviya posted on X, ".@INCTelangana is spreading an edited video, which is completely fake and has the potential to cause large scale violence. Home Minister Amit Shah spoke about removing the unconstitutional reservation given to Muslims, on the basis of religion, after reducing share of SCs/STs and OBCs.

"This fake video has been posted by several Congress spokespersons, including likes of @asmatasleem13 and others. They must be prepared for legal consequences."

The BJP has slammed Congress for allegedly disseminating false information and creating a discord in the society.

The Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations (IFSO) has initiated a probe into the origin of the video.
