A police complaint was filed by BJP leader Altaf Thakur against a social media user for uploading the video of Home Minister.

“This is to inform you one mischievous person under the name of Illyas Mir Magami @ Magamiillyas has uploaded a dubbed and fake video of Shri Amit Shah where in it is stated that Centre is going to remove the reservation of SC and ST people in J&K, which is totally baseless and far from facts,” Thakur stated in the complaint.

“ I request you to kindly act swiftly against the person and arrest him for spreading wrong information as the act has a potential to trigger resentment and protest by the SC and ST community of J&K,” it added.

After the complaint a case was registered in police station Magam Budgam on Monday under section 505( 2 ) (statements conducing to public mischief’) and 171 G (false statement in connection with an election) of Indian Penal Code.
