Cop post morphed picture of PM Narendra Modi with Hafiz Saeed on WhatsApp, suspended

A police inspector has been suspended for allegedly posting a photo-shopped picture of PM Narendra Modi with LeT chief Hafiz Saeed on a WhatsApp group.

The matter came to light a few days ago when a message was shared from Islam’s mobile phone on a WhatsApp group run by the traders’ cell of the ruling Janata Dal (United) in Bihar, police said.

The message contained a photograph of the PM shaking hands with Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed with the caption “Dekho kaun deshdrohi hai” (look who is the traitor), she said.

“A senior police officer inquired into the matter and found the allegations to be true,” Vaibhav added.

However, the inspector has claimed, “The message was not sent by me. It was sent by my grandson without my knowledge.
