Bhopal: A youth, who had allegedly created a
fake Facebook account in the name of Congress general
secretary Rahul Gandhi, had been arrested, police said.

The accused, identified as Ankit Saini, was arrested on
Monday and produced in a local court in Ambala, following
which he was released on bail.

According to police, Saini created this fake account, as
he said he was enraged over the police action against Yoga
guru Baba Ramdev and his supporters, during their fast at
Ramlila maidan in Delhi.

Acting on a complaint filed by Pankaj Chaturvedi, a
spokesperson of MP wing of Congress party, Bhopal police had
registered a case against an unidentified person for allegedly
sending messages to leaders and workers of women Congress as
well as girls by creating the fake FB account.

The cyber cell has also seized the laptop and cellphone
used by the accused to create Rahul Gandhi`s profile, they
said.

A case has been registered against the accused under
relevant sections of the IT Act and further investigations are
on.
