Jindal, TV channel editor fall prey to nasty messages

New Delhi, March 24, 2013, DHNS:

Fake pages created on Facebook to defame me: MP

Congress MP and industrialist Naveen Jindal has alleged that unknown persons have created fake community pages on social networking website Facebook in his name and defamatory and abusive messages are being posted on them.

On the website among others there are pages titled ‘Office of Naveen Jindal, MP (Lok Sabha) - Government Organisation’, ‘Common Interest-Beliefs and Causes, ‘Shame Shame Naveen Jindal is on Facebook’.

Jindal has now approached Delhi Police following which a case under section 66 of the Information Technology Act has been lodged with economic offences wing police station.


“The pages are frequently viewed by people all over the world believing the same to have been created by me, which in fact have been created deliberately by the unknown accused persons with dishonest and fraudulent intention to deceive the innocent people into believing the same to be updated by me,” Jindal told police.

The 43-year-old also suspects that the pages have been created with ulterior motives and may be part of a larger conspiracy.

“The profiles have been created for the purpose of causing annoyance, inconvenience, insult, injury and criminal intimidation to me and further for deceiving and misleading general public,” Jindal said.

He called for appropriate and immediate steps for having the pages blocked. The legislator is also making enquiries at his end to support the police investigation.

Jindal, a resident of South Avenue, is a Lok Sabha MP from Kurukshetra in Haryana, and chairman and managing director of Jindal Steel and Power Limited.

Editor targeted


In a separate incident, Zee News editor and business head Sudhir Chaudhary alleged that ‘nasty tweets’ were being posted on the wall of his Twitter account creating a hostile atmosphere against him.


A case has been registered in this regard after he went to court with the matter.
Chaudhary had sent a complaint to the cyber cell of economic offences wing police station in January and simultaneously filed a petition under section 156 of CrPC in Pataila House court.

The court had sought a report from the EOW which was filed in February stating that no cognisable offence is made out from the allegation. Detailed reasons for arriving at the conclusion were mentioned in the report.

“However, after hearing arguments, the court ordered that FIR under relevant sections be registered against unknown persons,” a police officer said.

The court, however, stated that it shall be ensured that no arrests are made without a reasonable cause. A case under section 66 of the Information Technology Act was filed on Thursday.
