Gokhale was arrested by the Ahmedabad Cyber ​​Crime Branch and was being brought here for further legal process, a senior police officer said, adding that they would reach by Friday afternoon.

This was the third time that Gokhale was arrested by the Gujarat Police this month.

He was first arrested by the Cyber ​​Crime Branch on December 6 for allegedly spreading fake news about the expenses incurred on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Morbi after a bridge collapse tragedy.

On 1 December, Gokhale had shared a news clipping about information allegedly obtained through Right to Information claiming that Rs 30 crore had been spent on Modi’s visit to Morbi after the bridge collapse.

Soon after getting bail from a court here, the TMC leader was arrested again by the Morbi police for the same offense on December 8. He got bail the next day.
