A small scale industrialist here was today arrested on the charge of posting "offensive" messages on social media targeting Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram's son Karti but released on bail by a court.
Ravi, owning a plastic packaging material factory, was arrested by local Crime Branch wing of CID Police on a recent complaint by Karti that he had posted "offensive" message against him on three occasions since 2011 on the micro blogging site Twitter, police said.
He was arrested under the Information Technology Act after registration of a case on the complaint by Karti Chidambaram lodged with the Union Territory's Inspector General of Police, they said.
Police produced 45-year old Ravi before Chief Judicial Magistrate Venkatakrishnan and sought 15 days remand. However, the CJM released him since the offence was bailable.
Ravi had allegedly posted messages about Karti's finances.
