The Chandigarh police is likely to go soft on the FIR registered by it against a 22-year-old girl for allegedly posting abusive remarks against the Chandigarh police on a social networking website (Facebook). Henna Bakshi, an army officer's daughter, was booked by the Chandigarh Police under the IT Act.
Col P Bakshi, Henna's father, is said to have shown remorse for the actions of his daughter. He has met senior Chandigarh Police officials and has expressed regret on the abusive remarks posted by his 22-year old daughter, a bravery award winner. He has also reportedly told the police that his daughter's intention was not to abuse any official.
Speaking to the media, Col P Bakshi had said that he had met the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Naunihal Singh who gave him a patient hearing. Hopeful of a just decision, he had said, "I support my daughter, she had not abused anyone in particular. I have full confidence in the police. I have met the police officers, they are right that the respect of government departments need to be maintained".
On the other hand, the Chandigarh police has decided to wait for logs from the social networking website to confirm that the remarks posted were by Henna Bakshi and that her account was not hacked by some person. "To carry investigation further, it is of the utmost importance to us to first establish that it was Henna Bakshi who had posted the remarks and not somebody else from her account. For this we have requested the website to send us the logs. This will take at least two to three weeks," said a senior police official on condition of anonymity.
Sources say that the police have decided not to take any immediate step in the case or question the girl. Further progress is likely to be made only after receipt of the official confirmation from the website. However, the police has taken strong exception to the extremely offensive remarks and abuses posted by Henna's friend, Kamalpreet Singh, on the same social website.
