Delhi based lawyer arrested for spreading fake news in Sushant Singh Rajput death case

A Delhi based advocate identified as Vibhor Anand, has been arrested for spreading fake theories in Sushant Singh Rajput case. According to police officials, Vibhor Anand was involved in making several false allegations in Disha Salian death case as well. Cops said he concocted several fake conspiracy theories in the death cases -- defaming the families and the Maharashtra government. The accused has been brought to Mumbai in connection with the case and has been booked under sections of the law, including the Information Technology Act. Vibhor Anand even made sensational allegations about the death of Disha Salian, who had been associated with Sushant Singh Rajput before the actor's death by suicide on June 14 this year. The man had claimed on Twitter that Ms Salian had been raped before her death and named several prominent personalities. Ms Salian had died on June 8 after falling off the 14th floor of a residential building in Mumbai.

Last month, Mumbai Police had arrested a model and YouTuber, who was posing as a journalist, for allegedly posting abusive content against women on social media. Pradeep Mohinder Singh Choudhary, who also goes by the name Saahil Choudhary, has videos on several topics, including the death of Mr. Rajput, on his YouTube channel. Acting on a woman's complaint, the police charged Mr Choudhary under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code for abusive language under the guise of being a journalist. The police had said that the man had confessed that he was not a journalist and had been uploading the videos to increase followers on his YouTube channel and other social media platforms, such as Instagram. The Twitter account of the accused, Vibhor Anand, has been suspended for violating the social media platform's guidelines.
