The Karimganj Police on Tuesday arrested a man on charges of posting pro-Pakistan comments on his Facebook account. The man has been identified as Abdul Wahid.
The comments praising Pakistan and derogatory remarks about India posted on his account had led to tension in Karimganj town.
“Police swung into action swiftly and detained Wahid,” Karimganj SP said.
On questioning, Wahid revealed that he was in contact with some people in Barpeta and Lanka.
Police have slapped sections of IT Act and IPC against Wahid and are conducting further investigations.
