Ahmedabad, May 11 (PTI) An editor of a Gujarati news

portal has been booked on the charge of sedition for uploading

a news item suggesting that BJP high-command may remove Chief

Minister Vijay Rupani from his post and replace him with Union

minister Mansukh Mandaviya, police said on Monday.

An FIR was registered by the Ahmedabad crime branch on

Friday against Dhaval Patel, the editor of news portal Face Of

Nation, under section 124-a (sedition) of the Indian Penal

Code and under the Disaster Management Act, a senior officer

said.

"As a precautionary measure in view of the coronavirus

pandemic, Patel has been detained, not arrested, and sent to

SVP Hospital for COVID-19 test," said Assistant Commissioner

of Police (ACP) BV Gohil.

As per the FIR, Patel published a story on his news

portal on May 7 suggesting a change of guard in the state. The

piece even claimed that Mandaviya has been called by the BJP

high-command to discuss the same.

The article further claimed that the high command was

not happy with Rupani''s handling of coronavirus crisis in the

state. PTI PJT PD
