BJP sides with father, Shah Faesal stays neutral
Abdul Rashid Shora claimed that Shela Rashid took a bribe amounting to Rupees three crores to join politics in J&K.
'What is underway is not democracy, but the murder of democracy,' Shehla Rashid said.
The SC allowed the government to file counter-affidavits on petitions challenging Article 370 repeal.
Shehla Rashid was booked for sedition on a criminal complaint by Supreme Court lawyer Alok Srivastav who had sought her arrest.
In a series of tweets on August 17, Shehla Rashid had alleged that the armed forces entered houses in Kashmir at night and "ransacked" them.
Shehla Rashid claimed that in Kashmir, 'armed forces are entering house at night, picking up boys, ransacking houses, deliberately spilling rations on the floor, mixing oil with rice, etc'.
Fielded by the CPI, Kanhaiya Kumar, a debutant, is pitted against BJP veteran Giriraj Singh and RJD's Tanveer Hassan in Begusarai, which goes to polls on April 29 for the Lok Sabha election.
The launch ceremony of Faesal's Jammu and Kashmir People's Movement (JKPM) took place at the Gindun Park in Rajbagh area in Srinagar, which was festooned with banners and white flags carrying Faesal's picture.
In January Faesal, a 2010 UPSC topper, resigned from the services to "protest against the unabated killings in Kashmir, and lack of any sincere reach-out from the Union Government".
Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said on Twitter that by filing the case against Rashid, the Uttarakhand police had shown that they would rather "take sides than deliver justice by upholding the law".
Asked if the invite was withdrawn because of BJP's criticism, Tewari said the "media was trying to create a storm in a teacup".
Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said the 2016 ‘sedition case’ will ruin the lives and careers of these Kashmiri students.
"Just shut your mouth or we will shut your mouth forever. Tell Umar Khalid and Jignesh Mewani also."
Interating with J&K audiences, comprising journalists, artists and students, for the first time in Srinagar, Kaur read out excerpts from her maiden book ‘Small Acts of Freedom’.
The new rules allow the universities to increase the intake capacity of foreign nationals both in research and contract jobs.
The protesting student on Monday hit the streets and marched to the Vasant Kunj police station, demanding Johri's arrest.
The contact details given by the accused while making his account on Facebook were fake, the police said.
