The man has been identified as Mohammad Talib.

Talib has been booked under Section 295 A (deliberate act intended to stomp on the religious sentiments of any group) of the IPC. According to the reports, the Uttar Pradesh police have found newspapers with photos of deities in huge numbers at the hotel counter named Mehak Restaurant.

On questioning the Mehak Restaurant, the owner said that his worker had bought newspapers from a salvage store and used these newspapers to wrap food items for customers, just like many restaurants do, without realizing that these newspapers depict photos of Hindu deities.

The family member of Talib, who has been running the restaurant since 2012, said newspapers have been used to pack food items for years. He further said that no one remembers the headlines or photographs in the newspapers before using them to wrap food items.

Earlier, during the Navaratri festival, a local Hindi daily reported that Talib used to pack non-veg items in the newspapers that depicted photos of Hindu deities. According to Circle officer Jitendra Kumar, police rushed to the hotel after receiving a report on Sunday night and seized the objectionable items.
