Activist Ali Sohrab Arrested For Social Media Posts, Twitterati Trends #ReleaseAliSohrab Calling For His Release

Popular social media activist Ali Sohrab was arrested today by Uttar Pradesh police from Delhi over posts which they claim were objectionable in nature.

Sohrab was arrested under sections 295A, 295B, 66, 67 IT act and was taken to Lucknow after securing his transit remand. He was arrested based on an FIR that was lodged against him at Hazratganj, Lucknow for his posts following the murder of the fringe outfit Hindu Samaj Party president Kamlesh Tiwari on October 18.

Sohrab had allegedly posted a tweet whose tone indicated celebration on the murder of Kamlesh Tiwari.

Ali Sohrab is a prolific voice on social media and frequently posts opinions on issues concerning Muslims in India.

Advocate Anas, who took to Twitter to inform about Sohrab’s arrest said that, although he never agreed with Sohrab, but he is keeping an eye on the case, and speaking to lawyers in Lucknow.

Anas also said that since none of the charges against Sohrab entailed a punishment of more than three years, getting a bail should not be difficult.
