Women journalists detained by Tripura Police for peddling fake news

One of the women journalists, Samriddhi Sakunia, tweeted that an FIR had been registered against them under 3 sections of IPC at the Fatikroy PS

Two women journalists Samriddhi Sakunia and Swarna Jha were detained on 14 November by Tripura Police after several cases were registered against them for publishing and broadcasting false, fabricated aimed at disrupting communal harmony, IG (Law and Order) Arindam Nath informed.

On detention of 2 female journalists, Tripura Police said, “Taking cue from the recent violence in Amravati & other parts of Maharastra as a repercussion of communal incident, it has become clear that some vested interest are trying to flare up the communal incident in Tripura.”

One of the two journalists, Samriddhi Sakunia, on Saturday tweeted that an FIR was registered against them under 3 sections of IPC at the Fatikroy police station, Tripura. The FIR was filed under sections 120(B), 153(A)/504.

On 13 November, the Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said reports related to the damage of a mosque in Tripura were fake.

reports that have been circulating that a mosque in Kakraban area of Gomati district in Tripura has been damaged and vandalized. These news reports are and are a complete misrepresentation of facts,” the MHA said.

The mosque in Dargabazar area of Kakraban has not been damaged and the Tripura Police in Gomati district is working to maintain peace and tranquillity.

The ministry said that there had no been reported case of damage of the structure of any mosque in Tripura in the recent past, unlike what the women journalists had claimed.

There is no report of simple or grievous injury or rape or death of any person in these incidents as alleged in some social media posts, the officials of the ministry said, referring to the posts of the women journalists.

Appealing to the people to maintain calm and not be misguided by such reports, the MHA said further that in Maharashtra there had been reports of violence and unsavoury statements that are aimed at disturbing peace and harmony, based on regarding Tripura.

This is very concerning and it is urged that peace is maintained at all costs, the ministry added.

There is no place for sentiments in geopolitics. It's self-interest that comes first. For how long are we going to prop up Russia's defence industry as a mark of loyalty to the past?
