Police have registered a case against TRS MP and daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, K Kavitha, for her alleged comments on Jammu and Kashmir and Telangana.
The case was registered two days back under Sections 124-A (sedition) and 505 (statements conducing to public mischief) of IPC following directions from a local court, said a South Zone police official.
A local court had last week directed police to investigate and file a case against Kavitha, the Nizamabad MP, upon a complaint over alleged remarks attributed to her. The complaint was filed by K Karunasagar, an advocate and the convener of the BJP's city legal cell.
The complainant in the petition alleged that Kavitha, in an interview, had made observations that Jammu and Kashmir and Telangana were not part of India earlier.
The police official said legal opinion is being sought on the matter for further action.
It looks like India turning into police state. Now nobody could air their openion openly without being harrased.
The sedition law is another archaic relic. Nobody has gone to jail but loonies like this woman say outrageous things to get free publicity. Sardar patel solved the Hyderabad rule 60 years ago and nothing this nutcase says is going to change it.
What this woman spoke was clearly anti-national and she must be severely punished.
