India outraged: voices rise in crescendo against 'Facebook arrests'

New Delhi: A local RTI activist Thursday asked Maharashtra Director General of Police Sanjive Dayal what action he had taken against the police officers who ordered and arrested the Palghar girls for questioning Mumbai shutdown by posting comments on Facebook.

 

"What action has been taken against the delinquent police officers who ordered and made illegal arrests of Ms. Shaheen Dhada and Ms. Renu Srinivasan of Palghar in Thane district in connection with their post on facebook", RTI activist Abdul Hafiz Gandhi asked in his application filed on November 22 under RTI Act 2005.

 

He further asked: Whether the police has filed FIR against the delinquent police officers involved in the illegal arrests of the two girls under Section 341 and 342 of Indian Penal Code, 1860 for wrongful arrest and wrongful confinement or not? If yes, please provide me the certified copy. If no, why FIR is not filed against the officers responsible for the illegal arrests? Give reasons."

 

Gandhi also asked in his application the names of the police officers who ordered and arrested the young women.

 

Thane rural police had on Sunday, November 18 arrested Shaheen Dadha for questioning the shutdown in the city after Thackeray's death Saturday, and the subsequent shutdown the day after for his funeral and cremation.

Another girl in Dadha's friends' list, who 'liked' the comment, was also arrested.

 

The arrest had invited sharp reactions from the entire country and outside with Justice (rtd) Katju writing to the Maharashtra Chief Minister and asking him to take immediate action. 

 

Following the outrage, Sanjeev Dayal, Maharashtra Director General of Police, ordered a probe. However, the findings of the probe which was expected Wednesday are yet to be made public.
