Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force arrested two Hindu men on Wednesday for a social media post which threatened to bomb Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and blow up Ayodhya’s Ram temple in a blast.
The duo used fake email addresses with Muslim names to send threatening posts.
According to a statement, a team of SIT arrested Tahar Singh and Omprakash Mishra from the Vibhuti Khand area of Gomti Nagar in Lucknow.
The statement said that the two had threatened Adityanath, STF chief Amitabh Yash and Ayodhya’s Ram temple in a post on ‘X’ in November using the handle ‘@iDevendraOffice’.
It was found that Tahar Singh created the email accounts and Omprakash Mishra sent the threat messages. Singh and Mishra are both residents of Gonda and work in a paramedical institute, the statement said.
