A homeopathic doctor has been arrested for allegedly posting derogatory remarks on a social networking site against BJP's Bhopal Lok Sabha seat candidate and Malegaon blast accused Pragya Singh Thakur, police said Thursday.
Accordingly, an FIR was filed against Nishad on Saturday under IPC section 295 (A) (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs), he said.
Nishad was arrested on Wednesday, the official said, adding that he was granted bail by a local court.
Out on bail, she has been discharged by a court on charges under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) in the 2008 Malegaon blast case, but is still facing trial under other criminal provisions, including the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
