Amit Shah Fake Video Case: IFSO Notifies 16 People, Telangana Chief Minister Is Expected To Appear Before Delhi Police Today

Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy is scheduled to appear before the Delhi Police’s Intelligence Fusion and Strategic Operations (IFSO) section today over the online distribution of a spoof video purporting to be of Union Home Minister Amit Shah. 16 people from eight states have received notifications from the IFSO to come in for questioning in the aforementioned matter.

Telangana Congress State Secretary Shiva Shankar, Telangana CM Revanth Reddy, party spokeswoman Asma Tasleem, online media coordinator Navin, internet media in-charge Mani Satish, and party spokesman Mani Satish received notifications from the IFSO on April 29 to attend for interrogation.

On May 1, at 10:30 a.m., they were directed to report to the IFSO headquarters in Delhi. They have to bring all of their electronic devices, including computers and cell phones, with them, per police requests. During the interview, the authorities will simply attempt to find out how they obtained the phony video. They’ll get another notice if they don’t show up for interrogation on Wednesday.

The IFSO is attempting to ascertain the number of people who have shared this Home Minister video thus far. Police believe that the phony film was purposefully made by a member of the Congress IT unit in order to discredit the BJP and confuse voters ahead of the Lok Sabha election.

In this instance, Ritam Singh, a Congress volunteer who coordinates the party’s war room, has been taken into custody by the Assam Police. On his social media account, he shared the phony footage.

A spoof film purporting to show Union Home Minister Amit Shah opposing reservations for SC, ST, and OBC voters has been making the rounds ahead of the third round of voting in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. But in truth, he was supporting the reserve. Several social media accounts have also posted the actual footage.

Following the April 28 complaint to the Home Ministry over the bogus video of Shah that went viral on the internet, the police swiftly moved to address the matter.
