CHENNAI: The Chitlapakkam police on Saturday arrested a 49-year-old BJP worker on charges of indulging in "hate propaganda" on social media.

Kalyanaraman Rangasamy, a resident of Purshotham Nagar near Chromepet, was booked under Section 153 of the IPC (wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot) and a court later sent him to jail.

Kalyanaraman was arrested after Chitlapakkam sub-inspector D Selvamani alerted his senior officers about the "fiery comments" the BJP man had made against members of another community on his FaceBook page in November last year.

Incidentally, the BJP functionary, who had taken part in a few TV panel discussions earlier, had been provided police protection since October last year following threat to his life. "I did a search on him in FaceBook and found the derogatory comments, which I brought to the notice of my superiors, who asked me to be the complainant in the case," Selvamani told TOI.

MMK leader M H Jawahirullah said the arrest was based on his complaint to police commissioner T K Rajendran on December 30.

BJP leader Tamilisai Soundarajan condemned the arrest based on comments in social media. "It (the arrest) only reflects intolerance. On behalf of BJP, I request that Kalyanaraman be immediately released," she said in a statement.

I did searched him on FaceBook and found the derogatory comments, which I brought to the notice of my superiors
