Police scanned the computer of the accused and found the picture on his desktop. He was taken into custody Friday after he admitted to the crime, said Sethi. Sahu has been arrested on multiple charges including for promoting enmity between different groups on ground of religion and making deliberate attempt to outrage the religious feeling of the people.
