NEW DELHI / AGARTALA , May 2 (TIWN): Congress Legal Expert & Eminent Lawyer on Thursday has warned Tripura Police to stay under law as police have no right to arrest facebook users for sharing news. Congress leader Advocate Pijush Kanti Biswas addressing media said, “The defamation case itself is illegal. The defamed person himself has to file case against an accused, but here instead of CM Biplab Deb, other persons have filed a case on his behalf. Moreover, police have no role to play here”. “We request police not to violate constitution. Instead of filing case against the news agency, the police have filed FIRs against those who liked/ shared the comments. This is ridiculous. Across India lakhs of people have read, passed the news. So will all be arrested ?”, Pijush Kanti Biswas said.“We (Congress) have no interest to talk on the grounds of Chief Minister’s family issues. Rather it's BJP which day-night holds politics with family issues. The main target is Rahul Gandhi’s family. We don’t want to go in the debate whether the news on Biplab Deb’s personal matter is right or wrong but what we want to say is that the Govt must follow the law”, Pijush Biswas told media.

“Our workers (Congress) should not be harassed illegally. Don’t play with fire”, Biswas warned Tripura Police.

Recently various illegal cases were registered for liking, sharing news items on Tripura CM’s divorce case with his wife.

Journalist Saikat Talapatra was arrested illegally for a post where he didn’t mention any name.

Many Congress leaders including Vice President Tapas Dey are being harassed by police after he liked / shared news. Tapas Dey earlier asked DIG Arindam Nath to arrest hawkers also for selling newspapers.

Under Chief Minister Biplab Deb when people are being arrested, harassed due to sharing news, facebook post with another expose in administrative corruption, Tripura’s leading media Tripurainfoway.com (TIWN) which was already illegally blocked by Home Ministry after Biplab Deb’s request, now has blocked in court order.

But surprising matter is that TIWN Editor Saumen Sarkar only came to know about the blocking after a source from the West District Magistrate Court informed him and passed the documents.

Till now, Tripura police could not prove whether Chief Minister Biplab Deb’s divorce case news is fake or right. Indeed it’s 100% correct news and all national media has said the same.

More if it could be proven as fake, then also according to law there is no provision to stop publication of a news media.
