Gujarat police arrests Trinamool's Saket Gokhale againtext_fields
Ahmedabad: According to a senior official, Gujarat police detained Trinamool Congress spokesperson Saket Gokhale late on Thursday night from Delhi in connection with an allegation of misusing funds he had raised through crowdfunding.
The senior police official stated that Gokhale had been detained by the Ahmedabad Cyber Crime Branch and was being transported here for additional legal proceedings. He also stated that they would arrive by Friday afternoon.
This was for the third time Gokhale was arrested this month by Gujarat Police.
He was first arrested by the Cyber Crime Branch on December 6 for allegedly spreading fake news regarding the cost incurred on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Morbi town following a bridge collapse tragedy.
On December 1, Gokhale had shared a news clipping about information purportedly obtained through the Right to Information claiming that Modi's visit to Morbi after the bridge collapse cost Rs 30 crore.
Soon after he received bail from a court here, the TMC leader was again arrested on December 8 by the Morbi police for the same offence registered there. He was granted bail the next day.
