    Police Complaint lodged against news portal over a defamatory article about the Hon’ble Governor.

    “A police complaint has been lodged against a news portal with the Cyber Crime Police Station at Bandra Kurla Complex in Mumbai on Thursday (14th May) regarding the publication of defamatory news about Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on the internet and its circulation on social media which relates to the alleged facilitation of the travel of a model from Maharashtra to Dehradun enroute Delhi.

    “The contents of the news are false, fabricated and based on a nefarious design with an intent to malign the unblemished image of Hon’ble Governor,” said Maharashtra Raj Bhavan in a statement on Thursday evening.

    According to Raj Bhavan officials, no such incident took place and the story was planted by some vicious elements to malign the Governor. Police officials said that this fake news was nothing but blackmailing the Governor and action will be taken against the website owners and writers.

    1. I just want that the two journos who wrote this article have to be brought to Mumbai by bus along with any migrants who wish to travel from Uttarakhand to Mumbai and interrogated here. Maybe not as long as Arnab’s interrogation, because they don’t deserve to, but should show the so called liberals that crap will not just be tolerated even if it came from the so called highly educated crap websites or journals or news portals. When they are proved guilty, they have to be fined and put on duty at the Governor’s residence making them sweep and mop on the exteriors of the house. To complete the cycle of justice, when proved with malafide intentions can be assigned the laundry duty at the model’s house too.

    2. Although I fully agree that fake news creators must be punished, I would have liked the article should have been accompanied by the views of News Uttarakhand. By doing so the article could have been considered more balanced. As for now, it appears one-sided.
