After the arrest on Saturday, citizens and Civil Society Organisations called on the police to either release information on Chude’s offense or release him.

The police have stated that they received a petition against Chude alleging that his activities on social media violated Section 24 of the Cybercrimes (Prohibition, Prevention, etc.) Act 2015 and other criminal laws.
