A three-member team of Arunachal Pradesh Police has left for Ludhiana in Punjab to take into custody YouTuber Paras Singh, who a couple of days back had racially discriminated MLA Ninong Ering in the social media.
The Arunachal Pradesh police team that left for Ludhiana in Punjab on Tuesday is being led by an Inspector-rank officer – Techi Vijay, and has two constables of the Special Investigation Cell.
IGP (Law and Order) – Chukhu Apa informed that the Arunachal Pradesh Police team will reach Ludhiana by Wednesday and that Paras Singh will be in Itanagar within 5 days.
A case has been filed against YouTuber Paras Singh under sections – 124A, 153A and 505(2) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
At least 10 complaints have been filed against Paras Singh in different police stations of Arunachal Pradesh.
Meanwhile, Paras Singh, alias Bunty, has been arrested by the Ludhiana Police on Tuesday for his racial remarks against MLA Ninong Ering.
The development was announced by Union Minister Kiren Rijiju, who said that the Arunachal Pradesh police is on its way to Punjab for securing his (Paras Singh’s) transit remand.
“Punjab Police searched and taken Paras Singh under custody. Arunachal Pradesh Police team is reaching Punjab. I have spoken to Police Commissioner of Ludhiana for urgent Judicial process for transit remand as it’s inter-state arrest so that he can be brought to Arunachal Pradesh,” Kiren Rijiju said.
In a very unfortunate incident, Ninong Ering, MLA from Pasighat West constituency in Arunachal Pradesh, was racially discriminated in the social media by YouTuber Paras Singh.
In his YouTube video, Paras Singh had questioned Ninong Ering’s nationality saying that the Arunachal Pradesh MLA “doesn’t look like an Indian”.
Paras Singh also said: “His (Ninong Ering) name does not seem like an Indian name.”
The YouTuber also questioned Arunachal Pradesh’s affiliation towards India.
He said: “Arunachal Pradesh is surrounded by China so people here are to large extent Chinese.”
