Bijnor (Uttar Pradesh), June 21 (TIWN): Three persons, including an NRI woman, have been booked by the police for allegedly trying to 'tarnish' the image of the brother and family members of Ram Mandir trust general secretary, Champat Rai.

He also alleged that Indonesia-returned, Alka Lahoti, and another person, Rajneesh, ‘conspired’ with Narain to defame his family and ‘hurt religious sentiments of people of the country’. 

Nagina is the home town of VHP leader Champat Rai.  Bijnor superintendent of police (SP) Dharamveer Singh said, “A case has been registered against Vineet Narain, Alka Lahoti and Rajneesh. They had put up a derogatory post on Facebook making allegations of corruption against Champat Rai’s family members. We have set up an inquiry into the matter. Prima facie, the allegation seems to be false. The accused tried to tarnish the image of Rai and hurt the religious sentiments of people. However, a probe is on and documents are being checked.” 

The case was filed under IPC sections 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on ground of religion), 293 (circulating obscene objects), 295A (deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings), 417 (punishment for cheating), 419 (punishment for cheating by personation), 448 (punishment for house-trespass), 465 (punishment for forgery), 457 (lurking house-trespass or house-breaking by night), 469 (whoever commits forgery, intending that the document or electronic record forged shall harm the reputation of any party).
