News18 anchor Aman Chopra absconding: After the FIR registered against News18 India anchor Aman Chopra in Bundi and Dungarpur districts of Rajasthan, now the Rajasthan Police is looking for him in Noida-Delhi. Many teams of Rajasthan Police are looking for him. While searching for Aman Chopra, a team of police had also gone to his Noida office on May 1, but could not find him. Aman Chopra has not even anchored his show “Desh Nahi Jhukne Dunga” since May 2.
There is a demand to arrest Aman Chopra on all social media platforms, while BJP leaders are defending him. Rajasthan BJP State President Dr. Satish Poonia and Deputy Leader of Opposition Rajendra Rathod have targeted the Rajasthan government for the action being taken against the anchor. At the same time, BJP leader Kapil Mishra also tweeted in support of Aman Chopra.
An employee of News18 India, on the condition of anonymity, says, “Police notice has been received. But nothing more happened than that. Nothing can be said about why Chopra is not doing the show. But he is not visible in the office. He confirms that the Rajasthan Police team had come to the News-18 office.”
Dilip Dan, SHO of Dungarpur Kotwali told, “Our team of 5-6 people went from Rajasthan to Delhi-Noida. I myself was with him. We had reached his office in Noida to arrest Aman Chopra. But we did not find him. We have come to his office by giving a notice under section 91 of CrPC, to which time till May 5 has been given to reply. If he does not file his reply by May 5, then action will be taken against him again under section 93 of CrPC.”
Dan further says, “We have asked for some documents for investigation under the notice of 91. The copy of that episode, who wrote the script, who is the producer of the program, along with their names, addresses have also been sought.
An FIR has been registered against Chopra under serious sections of sedition, apart from promoting communal disharmony, conspiracy and inciting riots.
What did Aman Chopra say
Aman Chopra, in his show “Desh Nahi Jhukne Dunga” on April 22, had called the encroachment action in Alwar, Rajasthan, as a revenge for the action taken in Jahangirpuri, Delhi.
In the show, Aman was repeating the line “Jahangirpuri Wala Badla, Mahadev par Hamla” again and again. He was telling the audience that the Congress government of Rajasthan demolished a 300-year-old temple in Alwar in return for the illegal encroachment that has been removed by bulldozers in Jahangirpuri.
After the question was raised on the show, the video on its YouTube was also made private and Aman Chopra also deleted his tweet.
Aman spread completely wrong information through the show. The truth is that the action to demolish the encroachment in Alwar was done on April 17. In which a temple was also demolished. This action took place three days before the demolishing of the gate of the mosque in Jahangirpuri. The encroachment action in Jahangirpuri was done on 20 April. Despite this, Aman called it revenge and told the incident of 22 April.
It was not only News-18 India which had shown the Alwar incident with the communal angle. Many other channels also showed this incident in a similar distorted manner. Politics has intensified in the state after the temple demolition incident.
