In an incident where an old picture of Union Home minister Amit Shah with the arrested IAS officer was shared on a social media page, filmmaker Avinash Das has been taken into custody. The director tweeted the image on May 8.
The filmmaker also posted a modified photo of a lady wearing tricolour. Police said that case has been registered for defaming the image of the union home minister and also for disrespecting the tricolour flag.
Avinash Das is best known for Anarkali of Ara. The investigation into the incident is progressing. There are also allegations that the film shared by the director is fake. The director’s Twitter and Facebook pages have disappeared following the controversy.
