The Supreme Court on Monday, May 8, dismissed plea by YouTuber Manish Kashyap seeking clubbing of FIRs in Bihar over alleged fake videos on mighrant workers being killed in Tamil Nadu.
Dismissing the plea, Chief Justice of India, DY Chandrachud remarked one cannot create disquiet in a stable state like Tamil Nadu.
Kashyap had shared a video of a Bihari migrant worker being battered in Tamil Nadu which had turned out to be fake. After this, a warrant was issued against the YouTuber journalist for spreading fake news.
Kashyap says there’s ‘Jungle raaj’ in Bihar under CM Nitish Kumar and Dy CM Tejashwi Yadav. Kashyap claims a lot of prominent people had tweeted the fake video but action was taken against him as the government is targeting him for pointing out mistakes of the ruling party.
