Booked for complaint against IPS officer: Activist | Hyderabad News

Activist Syed Abdahu Kashaf

HYDERABAD: Though a case was booked against a 25-year-old civil rights activist for a post on the Million March (related to anti-CAA protest), police have issued a notice directing him to appear the investigation office now. The activist, Syed Abdahu Kashaf, however, claims he was booked for complaining against a senior IPS officer for assaulting people in January.
A sub-inspector of cyber crime lodged a complaint in January based on his video posted on Twitter: “#BreakingNews The #MillionMarchProtest is not cancelled please don’t believe in rumours. Get united, don’t fall up in the traps. 2:00 pm at Dharna Chowk, Indira Park, Hyderabad. Please share as much as possible- Syed Abdahu Kashaf.”
“This video is likely to escalate communal tension among different communities which may cause a breach to public tranquillity,” the SI stated in his complaint.
“The content of the video did not target any specific community or religion. Police have booked a case under promoting enmity between different groups and criminal conspiracy on what basis,” Kashaf, who earlier worked for a political party, questioned.
“On January 10, I approached the Banjara hills police to lodge a complaint against Avinash Mohanty, DCP (CCS) after a video of the officer beating a few persons with a lathi at Puranapul went viral. The next day, after the intervention of CP Hyderabad, the cops took the petition and gave an acknowledgement. The same day, the case was registered against me by a cyber crime SI under the detective department,” Kashaf said.
However, Kashaf found out that he was booked only on Friday. “I am not aware of this particular case. While the notice will be served when the investigating officer starts the investigation. For the past three months of lockdown, cops have been busy with other duties,” Avinash Mohanty, who is now Joint CP, CCS, said.
