In a case involving money laundering, Ms. Singhal was detained in May. The accusations against her are refuted by her.

Das is the second prominent individual to be detained in recent weeks as a result of a social media post.

In June, police in the western state of Gujarat lodged complaint against Mr. Das, alleging that his post was intended to mislead the public and harm Mr. Shah’s reputation.

For posting a picture of a woman sporting the national flag on his Facebook and Instagram profiles, the police also brought a separate complaint against Mr. Das. The usage of the national flag on clothing is prohibited by Indian law.

According to Chaitanya Mandlik, deputy commissioner of police for the Ahmedabad crime section, “it is the responsibility of every Indian citizen to respect our national flag.”
