A senior office bearer of the Mizoram Pradesh Youth Congress Committee, or MPYCC, filed an FIR against a woman from Aizawl for a Facebook post in which she alleged a Mizo fugitive and his friends were beaten up in Delhi by two Mizo Congress youth members impersonating plain clothes policemen.
MPYCC secretary R. Lalhmingmawia Ralte filed the FIR at the Aizawl Police Station on Monday against one Lalrinfeli who goes by the Facebook name Felly Jahau.
Ralte said in the FIR someone going by the name Felly Jahau posted an article on the widely-followed “Zoram Politics” Facebook group where she “defamed” the ruling Congress party and mentioned two party leaders who “do not exist.”
The said Facebook post talked about one Michael, a man wanted by Mizoram Police in connection with a case involving allegations of EVM rigging during last year’s state assembly polls, being approached and manhandled by two men in Delhi.
The post alleged the men were impersonating plainclothes policemen but turned out to be youth Congress leaders.
Michael is wanted by police for instigating a well-known Aizawl educationist to make allegations the Congress rigged EVMs using a “powerful radiowave machine” and winning 34 of the state’s 40 assembly seats unfairly.
