MLA lodges FIR after landing in social media soup

ITANAGAR, Jan 28: Liromoba (West Siang) MLA Nyamar Karbak has lodged a complaint at the police station here, seeking action against persons who have been circulating a “fake document” on the social media in his name.
In the complaint, addressed to the officer-in-charge of the police station, Karbak wrote: “It is to bring your immediate attention that a fake document, with my forged signature is being circulated in the social media since January 26, 2019. The said document contains defamatory and untrue facts which may create political differences between me, my political party and my political superiors.”
The document, which is in circulation on the social media, particularly WhatsApp, apparently claims that Karbak has declared his support to the opposition party, whereas Karbak is a BJP legislator.
The MLA has also urged the person(s) behind the circulation of the document to “stay away from playing such unclean politics.”
“Some person(s) with vested interest is/are intentionally trying to tarnish my political image and create confusion in the minds of the people,” Karbak said.
