MLA Jignesh Mevani booked for ‘defaming’


Ahmedabad : Policenama Online – Based on the complaint of school principal, Jignesh Mevani was booked under IPC sections 505(2) (promoting rumour to create ill will) and 500 (defamation).

For allegedly sharing a fake video on social media and defaming a private school in Valsad through it.

Principal of the school lodged a complaint against the legislator at Valsad town police station, saying the video that he circulated did not belong to her school and he defamed her school and the teachers working.

In his May 20 post on the micro blogging site, which has since been removed, Mevani had shared a link of the video, and claimed that the teacher of Valsad’s RMVM School was involved in thrashing a student.

He had even tagged the PMO in his tweet posted in Hindi.
