What action taken on plaint against Owaisi, court asks police

New Delhi, March 22 (IANS) A Delhi court on Tuesday asked police to report what action they have taken on a criminal complaint against All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi for alleged offences of sedition and causing enmity between different classes.

The court asked police to file an action taken report (ATR) on the issue by May 7.

The complainant alleged that on March 13, Owaisi had voluntarily said, “Even if somebody puts a knife at me, I will not say ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’,” and that Owaisi’s expression showed “disaffection and includes disloyalty and all feeling of enmity”.

The petitioner had sought a direction to the Karawal Nagar police station chief to lodge an FIR against Owaisi for the alleged offences under Sections 124A (sedition) and 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race etc.) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
