A month after the cyber cell of the UT police registered a case against an Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) worker for sending malicious e-mails using a fraudulent e-mail address, the police arrested the accused, Manpreet Singh, on Tuesday.

The police had booked Singh, a resident of Sector 8, on June 20 after a complaint against him that he had created a fraudulent e-mail address of AAP Chandigarh central observer Roopinder Dhaliwal, and also sent her resignation letter to party leaders, including Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia.

The party had complained to the UT senior superintendent of police that the email address,, was being used to send misleading and malicious emails.

Apart from registering a case for forgery and cheating under the IPC, some charges related to the Information Technology Act 2000 were also slapped against Singh in a case registered at Sector-3 police station.

How much is too much?

Avarice is a trait for which I do not claim exclusivity. Most of you would find its traces in yourself, though in varying proportions. A cursory glance of the scriptures made me aware of five vices. One of them is greed. Writes Avneet Kanwal Randhawa.
