Ahmedabad: Ahmedabad crime branch police arrested a film producer Avinash Das (46) on the allegations of sharing a photo of Union Home Minister Amit Shah with Jharkhand cadre IAS officer Pooja Singhal on Twitter on May 8th.

IAS officer who is in photo with Amit Shah was recently arrested by the ED in a money laundering case, said Ahmedabad police inspector H M Vyas. The photo shows Shah and Ms Singhal at a public event five years ago, but Das tweeted it to mislead people and defame the Minister’s reputation, said the police.

Das has also been charged for allegedly insulting the national flag by posting on March 17th a morphed picture of a woman wearing a Tri-colour on his Facebook account, the official said. A case has been registered against Das under IPC 469 (forgery) and section 67 of IT Act for the May 8th Twitter post, he said. Das has also been charged under sections of the Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act and IT Act for the March 17th Facebook post, the official added.

Das has directed the 2017 film Anaarkali of Aarah, starring Swara Bhaskar, Sanjay Mishra and Pankaj Tripathi.
