Amit Kumar, a resident of Sarahati village in Kannauj district, has filed a case against Zuckerberg and 49 others for posting defamatory comments against Akhilesh Yadav.

In his application before the court, Kumar has alleged that an attempt to tarnish the image of Samajwadi party chief was made on a Facebook page titled “Bua Babua”.

Kumar had sent an application to the Superintendent of Police on May 25 but his application fell into deaf ears. Following which, he went to court and demanded that a case be registered against the admin of the Facebook page along with the CEO Zuckerberg.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Dharamveer Singh asked the police to lodge the case at the behest of Kumar.

The term “Bua Babua” was coined when BSP chief Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav, the popular political rivals, formed an alliance in the 2019 parliamentary election.

“During the course of investigation Zuckerberg’s name was dropped, even as investigation is being carried out against the administrator of the (Facebook) page,” said a senior police official.
