GUWAHATI: A Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawan was arrested by Assam police for allegedly making objectionable comments against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union home minister Rajnath Singh in a video that he had posted on the social media.

In the video, the accused, Pankaj Mishra, also alleged that the jawans in the central paramilitary force were being discriminated against by their seniors and that the officers would engage them to perform their household chores.

A month ago Mishra was transferred to Jorhat from West Bengal after his video of an attack by the Naxalites on a CRPF camp at Durgapur had gone viral on the social media.

In this case, he was arrested based on an FIR lodged by the commander of the CRPF’s Rowriah-based 119 unit, B Behra and was booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the IT Act.

Following his arrest, the jawan was produced in a court, which sent him to judicial custody.
