You very well know what I said but simply wish to spread misinformation”.

    The order is probably going to be gone by the court on October 9.

Further, it’s alleged that the tweet may cause rear-ender between the people of various group believe different ideology.

    It’s submitted that neither the police official nor the govt had initiated any action to curb/check these activities suo-motto and did not register any case against the above named accused.
