However, before this Manish Maheshwari has also filed a caveat petition in the Supreme Court on his behalf. This means that without hearing Manish Maheshwari’s side, the Supreme Court will not pass any order on hearing the appeal of the Uttar Pradesh government. The Karnataka High Court has put an interim stay on the arrest of Twitter India MD Manish Maheshwari on this matter.
Let us tell you that on June 24, the Karnataka High Court had granted protection from arrest to Maheshwari in an FIR registered by Loni police in Ghaziabad. Ghaziabad Police has issued a notice to the MD of Twitter asking him to appear at the Loni police station to conduct an inquiry regarding the viral video of the attack.
Earlier Twitter India officials had informed the police that they were ready to be available for questioning through video conferencing which was rejected by the police. The Ghaziabad police had registered a case against Twitter Inc, Twitter Communications India, news website The Wire, journalists Mohammad Zubair and Rana Ayyub, besides Congress leaders Salman Nizami, Muskoor Usmani, Shama Mohammad and author Saba Naqvi.
He was accused of sharing a video in which an elderly Abdul Shamad Saifi claimed that he was allegedly thrashed by some youths, who also asked him to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’. .
Police claim that the video was shared to create communal unrest. Police have said that the attack took place because the accused were unhappy with the ‘talisman’ sold by Saifi, a resident of Bulandshahr. The police had denied a communal angle in the case.
In the video that went viral across the country, Saifi purportedly said that he was attacked by some youths and forced to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’. But according to the district police, he did not say anything in his FIR lodged on June 7, two days after the incident. The FIR lodged on June 15 said that the Ghaziabad police had issued a statement with facts of the incident but despite this the accused did not remove the video from their Twitter handle.
