FB arrest inquiry

Mumbai, Nov. 24: The Maharashtra state commission for women has asked police for a report on the arrest of the two women in Palghar over a Facebook post, acting on a complaint by a former bureaucrat and advocate Abha Singh.

Shaheen Dhada and Rinu Shrinivasan were arrested on November 19 over a post that questioned the shutdown in Mumbai on the day of Bal Thackeray’s funeral.

Abha filed her complaint on November 20, alleging gross violations of human rights of the women by police. The state home ministry is looking into an inquiry report submitted by the inspector-general (Konkan range) on the arrests.
