Facebook admin released

IN Media Watch Briefs | 03/04/2018

Deccan Chronicle reported  on April 3 that the admin of a Facebook page ‘Spirit of Telangana’ was picked up by Hyderabad police in mufti on Monday for allegedly posting derogatory comments against the government. He was told the complaints were from the CM's office. He challenged them to prove that the posts were put by him. He was let off at night and asked to come in the morning. Given the huge political reaction that followed the arrest no case was filed, eventually.
