Engineering student arrested in Pune for offensive post

A 20-year-old engineering student in the city has been arrested for posting an offensive comment against a community on a social networking site.

Amitsinh Kate, the first year engineering student, was arrested yesterday for posting a comment that stated he would avenge the Godhra incident, the Bund Garden Police said.

The student told the police that he posted the comment on May 2 after he saw the clips of the Godhra riots on the Internet.

Kate has been booked under Sections 295(A) (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class) and 153(A) (promoting enmity) of the IPC and section 66(F) of IT Act.

He was remanded in police custody for four days.

The city cyber crime cell initiated action against Kate after the authorities received complaints from community members, police said.
