A student of Class XII was arrested for allegedly uploading a controversial post attributed to senior UP minister Azam Khan on Facebook.

“The boy posted comments on Facebook which could incite communal tensions and spoil peace and harmony,” Circle Officer Aley Hassan said.

In the post Azam Khan was targeted by mentioning a provocative speech allegedly delivered by him, he said.

On a complaint lodged with the police by the minister’s PRO Fasahat Ali Khan Shanu, a team of crime branch sleuths was constituted which raided the youth’s residence and nabbed him on Monday.

The youth was produced in the court of Judicial Magistrate Azad Singh who sent him on remand and his next hearing is scheduled for tomorrow.
