Alwar: 2 held for pasting Godse’s posters on bridge
The Alwar police on Thursday arrested two persons in connection with the vinyl posters displayed on two railway overbridges (ROBs) here on Tuesday night. The accused were produced before the chief judicial magistrate (CJM), who remanded the duo to two week's judicial custody.
At a press conference on Thursday, Alwar SP Vikar Kumar said Neeraj Sharma (45) had been arrested for pasting the posters while Shambhu Dayal had been arrested for printing the poster. The two posters, which displayed the names of Mahatma Gandhi's assassin Nathuram Godse and freedom fighter Mangal Pandey, created a row after reports emerged that the state government had tried to name the two ROBs after them. Kumar said police investigation had found that Sharma had no links with any social or religious outfit and had pasted the poster on his own.
"He comes from a good family. His father is a former RAS officer and his brother is works for the police department," the SP added. Sharma was inspired to put up the poster after he saw messages on the social media glorifying Godse as a nationalist, the police said.
