It is mentioned on the Facebook profile of female writer Shikha Sharma that she is an artist in All India Radio in Dibrugarh. Sharma also came into the limelight in October last year.
Case filed against writer Shikha Sharma
A sedition case has been filed against a 48-year-old female writer in Assam (Assam). Writer Shikha Sharma has been accused of allegedly posting objectionable posts on Facebook regarding the soldiers killed in the Naxalite attack in Bijapur, Chhattisgarh. After this post, the police arrested him on Tuesday. On Saturday, 22 soldiers of the CRPF’s Cobra Commandos were killed in an ambush carried out by Naxalites in Bijpur.
According to reports, the accused Shikha works writing in Guwahati. Guwahati Police Commissioner Munna Prasad Gupta said, ‘A case has been registered against Sharma in various sections including section 124-A (sedition) of the Indian Penal Code. Sharma will be produced in court tomorrow. The writer is very vocal on social media. He allegedly wrote on Facebook on Monday, ‘Salaried professionals who lose their lives while performing duty cannot be called martyrs. Based on this logic, if a worker working in the electricity department dies due to exposure to electricity, then he should also be given martyr status. The media should not play with the sentiments of the people.
She has already commented against the government in the past
OC Prafulla Kumar Das of Dispur police station said that a case was registered after the complaint. On the basis of the recorded case, the arrest of the female writer has been done. Sharma’s Facebook profile mentions that he is an artist in All India Radio in Dibrugarh. Sharma also came into the limelight in October last year. He wrote a post against the government on social media after which he had allegedly received rape threats.
After the online flak, Sharma responded with an online post on Monday night. Will false propaganda against me come under the purview of law? Why is there no investigation about the FIR I have registered about the murder.
