An advocate was arrested in the wee hours of today on charges of uploading an offensive post on a social media site against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa on Deepavali day.

Udhagamandalam AIADMK Town Secretary Devaraj lodged a complaint in the Town police station, stating that advocate B.C. Sridhar had, on November 10, uploaded a Deepavali wish from a picture resembling that of the CM wearing jeans and holding a liquor bottle.

He said that the picture, with morphed face resembling Jayalalithaa on a model, had gone viral, demeaning the CM.
