JHABUA: Police have arrested a homeopathic doctor in Para Town in Madhya Pradesh for allegedly posting on social media a picture and a comment alluding to the crackdown on illegal slaughter houses.
The 30-year-old doctor, identified as Atiq Khan, was arrested yesterday for sharing the "objectionable" post, based on a complaint lodged by local resident Anil Prajapat, police said.
The picture and the comment apparently alluded to the crackdown on illegal slaughter houses in Uttar Pradesh and and other BJP-ruled states.
"Khan, who holds a BHMS degree, was arrested on charge of posting an objectionable picture and content on social media site," Jhabua police station incharge ML Bhati said today.
He was booked under sections 505 (statements conducive to public mischief) of the IPC, the police official said.
He was produced before a local court which sent him to the judicial custody, he added.
