BJP divisional president Vineet Thakur had filed the complaint against the admin and another group member, after which the former was arrested yesterday in Khatauli town, a police official said.

Thakur had alleged that a message, which was posted on the group, had “hurt sentiments” of a particular religion. BJP activists, led by Thakur, had staged protests demanding action, the official said.
