Noida: A scrap dealer was arrested on Wednesday for posting an alleged objectionable picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on social media, police said.

Raja alias Javed, 20, is a resident of Yaqoobpur village, and is accused of posting the "objectionable" picture of the prime minister on WhatsApp and Facebook, the police said.

"A complaint was made against the accused on Monday and an FIR registered on the basis of that. He was arrested from Nagla Bus Stand by the Phase 2 police around 1.30 pm today," an official said.

The mobile phone used by him for uploading the picture has been seized and he has been remanded in judicial custody be a local court, the official said.

Raja has been booked under Indian Penal Code sections 500 (defamation) and 505 (public mischief) and relevant provisions of the Information Technology Act, the police said.
