The story is false https://twitter.com/SreenivasanJain/status/27039450506319462...



Really ? The guy tweeting seems legit but even timesofindia has this story: http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/21-year-old-girl-ar...

Also the vandalism of the clinic definitely happened.

Times of India is a shitty news organization, they're just like Techcrunch, but for the whole nation.

I wasnt expecting such a witty comment on HN.

-----


the text is the same, they could just be reposting it from mumbaimirror without a lot fact checking

-----


That's quite possible, the copy paste is quite obvious though I don't know for sure which way it went. I don't know who this tweet is from or his credibility so I'll just leave it up in the air for now.

It's still alarming that they were vandalized over a facebook post and the police is looking into possible criminal liability.

Also, the news reports talk specifically of what sections of law the girls were booked under. Doesn't sound so fake because of that.

It seems she was just detained and then released.

The story is not false. As confirmed by the same guy: https://twitter.com/SreenivasanJain

And Hindustan Times who say that the girls are to appear in court. http://www.hindustantimes.com/India-news/Mumbai/Mumbai-woman...

Sreenivasan Jain is a very respected veteran journalist. I would like to go with what he says.

-----


He now says that the girl was indeed arrested: https://twitter.com/SreenivasanJain
