On Thursday, Delhi Police said they have received a complaint against actress Swara Bhasker, Twitter MD Manish Maheshwari, journalist Arfa Khanum Sherwani and others over their tweets about an elderly man who was allegedly assaulted in Ghaziabad on June 5. Bhasker, Sherwani, and others “spread hate against the citizens” by trying to give the incident a “communal colour”, the complainant said. Amit Acharya, an advocate, submitted the complaint at the Tilak Marg police station in Delhi on Wednesday. The complainant has demanded that Delhi police register an FIR against Twitter Inc, Bhasker, Maheshwari, Sherwani and a man named Arif Khan and book them under IPC sections 153 (provocation for rioting), 153A (promoting enmity between different groups), 295A (acts intended to outrage religious feelings), 505 (mischief) and 120B (criminal conspiracy).
