Cop Suspended for Sharing Anti-Modi FB Post

Madikeri: A police constable, who shared a Facebook post which took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was suspended by Superintendent of Police P Rajendra Prasad.

RTI activist BS Nandakumar of Makkanduru village, in Madikeri district, recently complained to the SP against Sameel, a police constable working at Ponnampet police station. He had used the singular against Modi.

Sameel shared the post he had received from some others against the Prime Minister. The writing mentioned protests by the army and asks, “Have you seen protests by Armymen earlier? Have you heard of such things? Does the Modi govt need more shame than this one? Is it not enough that you (‘neenu’ in Kannada) have become Prime Minister?” the shared message said.
