In the Amit Shah Deepfake Video, BJP leader Shah was allegedly seen announcing the curtailment of SC, ST and OBC reservation rights.

A complaint in this regard was lodged by Mumbai BJP functionary Pratik Karpe at the Bandra Kurla Complex cyber police station on Monday, an official said.

According to the complainant, the grossly Amit Shah Deepfake Video was created, published and widely promoted on the internet and shared by the accused with the malafide intention of defaming the Union Minister.

According to the complaint, the video fraudulently shows Shah announcing restrictions on reservation rights granted to Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes.

However, the original video from which the deepfake video was created has completely different wording and connotations, the complainant said.

In his original speech, Shah said that if the BJP comes to power, it will complete the unconstitutional Muslim reservation and this right will be given to the SCs, STs and OBCs of Telangana, as per the petitioner.

The accused persons created a deeply fake video of the speech and circulated it widely on various social media platforms, Karpe alleged.

The complainant has also asked the police to immediately withdraw the deeply fake video and register a case against the accused persons who shared it for allegedly inciting enmity and hatred in various castes.

Based on the complaint, a case was registered under various sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act at the BKC cyber police station against the social media manager of the Maharashtra Youth Congress and 16 others who allegedly shared the deeply fake video on various social media platforms, the official said.

According to him, the case is under investigation.
