AAP leaders, including Kejriwal, sink to a new low as they spread lies about rape of a girl in Gujarat

At a time when the nation is still coming to terms with the heinous Kathua rape case, another horrific rape case has emerged from Surat, Gujarat where a nine-year-old was raped and tortured for nine days before being murdered. While the case from Surat is still under investigations, unverified, fake news started making rounds of social networking sites, most of which claimed involvement of a BJP Gujarat leader.

Some of these unverified news were retweeted by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as well.

His desperation to malign BJP/ABVP seems so intense that he does not even bother to check whether the news is fake or not. It was not just Arvind Kejriwal, but even other AAP leaders like Dilip Pandey and Alka Lamba, who is best known for her bizarre crying selfie on seeing the plight of Syrian kids, and delaying rescue operations during a fire, also retweeted the fake news, who spread this fake news.

Even Misa Bharti, daughter of fodder scam convict Lalu Yadav, who is also under the scanner for alleged scam, retweeted the fake tweet.

However, Surat Police, on social media, has refuted these claims, calling this involvement of BJP/ABVP leaders a fake news, since the case is still under investigation.

Following Surat Police’s tweet, Irfan Anjum deleted his tweet which had over 650 retweets, including one by AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal. However, the other person, Chandrashekhar Bhankrota has not yet deleted his tweet, despite being pointed out by others that this is fake. In his profile picture, Bhankrota can be seen with Congress’ IT cell head Divya Spandana.

However, after being pointed out Arvind Kejriwal has undone the retweet of the fake news he had retweeted. This is progress, considering the last time he set a lower bar of decency for himself by showing pictures of dead robber, claiming he is an innocent citizen. Under the guise of curiosity, Arvind Kejriwal has regularly spread fake news. Hence, the fact that this time he undid his retweet speaks volumes of his fear of being called out for his lies, especially in wake of vigilant Twitter users who have taken the role of fake news buster.

Meanwhile, Darshana Jardosh, Surat MP has taken note of the tweet and said she will take up the case with Surat Police authorities.

Update: Surat Police has booked three people for spreading fictitious and false messages on social media, including one Irfan Anjum, whose tweet Arvind Kejriwal had retweeted before Anjum deleted his tweet.
