Media has always been a major force in driving the news to the public. Media has evolved from print to digital media.
Yet there are many sites who spread false news about many cases.
One such site is scroll.in. There have many sites claiming that scroll publishes fake news about certain high-profile criminal cases.
One such case involving Rakesh Asthana has been brought in bad light.
Rakesh Asthana was the ex-deputy superintendent of the Central Bureau of Investigation. CBI is the primary investigating agency of India. It is also known as the POC for contact with Interpol.
Rakesh was the investigating officer in the case involving a Hyderabad businessman, Satish Babu Sana. Satish was involved in a case of a meat exporter Moin Qureshi.
Sana filed a FIR & alleged that Rakesh had demanded a bribe from him to spare any legal action in the case.
CBI arrested Asthana as per the FIR lodged by Sana.
Asthana had also alleged that Alok Verma, then the Superintendent, had framed him for corruption & accused him of the same charge.
The high court ruling had, however, given a clean chit to Asthana and cleared him of all charges.
Scroll published false news framing Rakesh Asthana & Someshwar Srivastava in false cases downgrading their image.
We collected sources from Change.org, opindia.com, hindupost.in & stophinduhate.org that have claimed that scroll is a fake news site & every news posted on it is completely false and opposite to reality.
