New Delhi: With much reluctance, Delhi Police has lodged a complaint that says that some miscreants have been circulating morphed images of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and three well-known women journalists of the electronic media: Chitra Tripathi, Anjana Om Kashyap and Sweta Singh.
The journalists whose morphed images the complainant has received on his WhatsApp application work for the television news channel Aaj Tak.
The complainant says it’s part of a conspiracy to tarnish the image of Prime Minister Modi and the three eminent woman journalists named above.
After the complainant struggled to make the Parliament Street thana lodge a complaint, the police have still not registered an FIR.
The complainant Ajay Kumar, who lives in an apartment in east Delhi, sat on a dharna (sit-in demonstration) to demand the FIR.
Kumar says this is a case of character assassination and defamation as the photo messages doing the rounds of messaging platform WhatsApp are sexually explicit, with the faces of the known personalities superimposed on scenes of characters of adult films.
