NEW DELHI: Five members of the Congress IT team have been arrested in the case related to Union Home Minister Amit Shah's deep fake video. Delhi Police arrested them from Hyderabad.

The arrest was based on a case registered by the cyber police on a complaint by the BJP leadership that a false video had been circulated through fake accounts. Congress leaders Asma and Geeta and social media cell members Naveen, Shiva and Manna were arrested. They will be brought to Delhi soon.

The case was sparked by a video showing Amit Shah in a speech in Telangana saying he would end SC-ST and OBC reservations. Edited and disseminated a speech to remove Muslim reservation in Telangana. Amit Shah lashed out at the Congress leadership at a press conference in Guwahati by releasing the original video of the speech. Amit Shah had alleged that the Congress, which is afraid of failure, is making and spreading fake videos with the knowledge of Rahul Gandhi.

However, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge replied that BJP is an expert in making fake videos. Action has also been started in various states on fake videos. In connection with the case, the video was removed from various X accounts, including those of the Youth Congress and NCP. The case is charged with creating enmity between the two factions. The Delhi Police issued a notice to Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy asking him to appear after showing that the video was circulated through party handles.
