21 YEARS old is spending his time in jail for the crime he didn’t do. He had to pay the price for being admin of group as the creator left away after when the hoax message was sent by any member in the group. The message was tagged as forward and a fake one too.
Irfan was the original admin and sender of the message. Junaid, 21-year-old B.SC student and a local resident of Talen town in Rajgarh were convicted on 14 February under the IT Act and IPC Section 124 A (sedition).
At the time when the investigation started against these two then Junaid was the admin of the Whatsapp group.
Farukh cousin of Junaid told police “he wasn’t in Ratlam for some family work when the message was posted by original admin. As soon as he got aware of such wrong action he too left the group”.
Farukh told the media “we have tried every possible way to make police understand about the situation but no one was interested in listening to us, we even approached Senior officials to look upon this case yet the result was same as before”
“Court even denied the right to give Junaid exam as he was under sedition” he added.
In regards to this matter Pachore police station in-charge, Yuvraj Singh Chouhan said that “Junaid family didn’t approach us at the time we put charges against the victim based on current prospects if they had shown up before the matter could be different. Irfan was also taken into custody, If there was any proof of Junaid innocence court would have looked into it and tried to solve the matter with more legal terms. We filed the challan on the basis of the evidence available”.
