bjpPathankot: BJP leader Parveen Manhans has been booked for allegedly damaging a religious hoarding on the eve of the 31st anniversary of Operation Bluestar here and posting objectionable content against a community on social media.

Manhas, former BJP Kisan Morcha Secretary from Punjab, was booked yesterday under Section 295- A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) on the basis of complaint filed by various Sikh organizations, SSP Pathankot, Rakesh Kaushal said today.

He said on 31st anniversary of Operation Bluestar last week, various Sikh organizations had affixed a hoarding at bus stand here.

The accused allegedly damaged the hoarding and then uploaded objectionable remarks against a particular community on social networking site, Kaushal said.

“Upon an enquiry, a prima facie case was established against the leader,” the police officer said, adding that the accused is absconding and a team has been formed to arrest him.
