In yet another setback for Alt News co-founder Mohammad Zubair, a Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been constituted by Uttar Pradesh for an expeditious probe into fresh cases lodged against him. According to reports, the SIT has been asked to conduct a ‘transparent’ probe and submit a charge sheet in the court.
Police officials have informed that separate FIRs have been lodged against Zubair in Sitapur, Lakhimpur Kheri, Ghaziabad, Muzaffarnagar and Hathras districts on charges of hurting religious feelings, making sarcastic remarks on news anchors, disrespecting Hindu gods and inflammatory posts.
(This is a developing story. More details awaited.)
