Reasons behind Delhi Police raid on Siddharth Varadarajan, MK Venu, Jahnavi Sen

The raids were not for defamation, as some leftist “intellectuals” say, but for consistently indulging in lies, deception, fraud, forgery and criminal conspiracy. In fact, there is no civil defamation case against The Wire, Varadarajan and others. A criminal case has been registered against them for forgery, forgery and criminal conspiracy.

The complaints of the left lobby in support of Siddharth Varadarajan and company are laughable. Their claim that Devesh Kumar misled them in their reporting on the Meta stories is laughably absurd. Even if it can be assumed that Siddharth Varadarajan and Jahnavi Sen were misled by Kumar for their original story, the subsequent falsehood, fabrication and staunch defense of their position shows the trust and belief of Varadarajan and other journalists in the original story and the allegations made. from them.

In fact, even in the face of conflicting evidence and denials from independent experts, Varadarajan refused to budge and continued to place his faith in Meta’s stories, which have now been retracted by The Wire.

The Wire and Siddharth Varadarajan have denied a statement released by Meta unequivocally condemning The Wire’s allegations that Amit Malviya has the power to remove Instagram posts that not to his liking. The story was also passionately debunked on social media, with users pointing out gaps in The Wire’s reporting.

However, Varadarajan and company dug in their heels and refused to heed online criticism. They fabricated a fake letter from Meta executive Andy Stone to establish the authenticity of their story. Even after Stone called the e fake and warning The Wire that the email may have been forged, Varadarajan claimed that Malviya had the privilege on Meta’s Instagram app to remove posts critical of the BJP.

If this wasn’t enough, they verified the fake Andy Stone’s email with fake DKIM, with fake verification by two external experts. It wasn’t until independent researchers were cited by The Wire as experts that they definitively verified DKIM. has been denied After such a review, The Wire apologized and took down their Meta stories.

Apart from all these inconsistencies, Varadarajan also claimed that Wire’s internal computers had a faulty data seal due to TailOS. It raises the question of who accessed his computer to enable the tampering.

At one point during the Meta vs The Wire saga, Siddharth Varadarajan also claimed to have met Meta sources when social media users and domain experts raised questions about The Wire’s story.

Amit Malviya’s FIR against The Wire

The Wire retracted its Meta story after Amit Malviya moved to a complaint against publication. In his complaint to the Special Commissioner (Crime) of Delhi Police, Amit Malviya said: “I am filing the present complaint against The Wire, an online news portal Mr. Siddharth Varadarajan Founding Editor of The Wire Mr. Siddharth Bhatia Founding Editor. The Wire, Mr. MK Venu Founding Editor of The Wire, Ms. Jahnavi Sen, Deputy Editor and Executive News Producer of The Wire, an independent journalism foundation that owns and publishes The Wire and other unknown persons. I am filing this complaint for the offenses of cheating, forgery to defraud, forgery to cause injury to reputation, passing a false document or electronic record as genuine and defamation, among other provisions of the IPC.”

Amit Malviya added: “I say that this is not the first time that the accused has published fake news. The Accused recently published a story on Tek Fog about a ‘superhuman app’ being used by the BJP to intercept SM. The said story has been used by various national and international media to denigrate India and our country’s thriving democracy. However, the Tek Fog story was later removed, but The Wire, as it was found to be false and fabricated, just like in this case.”
