KOZHIKODE: Police on Thursday registered a case against the incendiary social media posts hurled at LDF candidate for Vadakara, K K Shailaja. Taking due procedures from Shailaja’s complaint, Mattanur police booked KM Minhaj, a Gulf Malayali, and a native of Naduvannur. He has been charged with incitement and spreading false information.

In the FIR, it has been mentioned that Shailaja's picture was morphed and circulated on social media to create riots. However, Minhaj retorted to the claims and said all he intended was to troll the candidate but nothing more. Interestingly, the complaint was filed almost 20 days back, and it took this long for the police to register a case. Minhaj is said to be an active member of the Muslim League.

Youth Congress state president Rahul Mamkootathil welcomed the move to arrest the culprit behind the vile social media abuse but lashed out at the hypocrisy of the state government in allowing a free run for all the CPM activists engaged in similar vile behaviour against congress women leaders on cyber space.

On Thursday, a case was registered against a Muslim League activist for sharing a post on social media against K K Shailaja. The case was registered against Muslim League activist Aslam, New Mahe panchayat secretary. The complaint is that a fake campaign was made against Shailaja in a WhatsApp group called 'Mangadu Snehatheeram'. The police have slapped rioting charges against him.
