Former UP Governor Booked Under Sedition
In another update from Uttar Pradesh, former UP governor Aziz Qureshi has been booked under sedition by the UP Police. This comes after BJP Leader Akash Saxena filed a complaint regarding his alleged recent remarks regarding Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s government.
As per the reports, Aziz Qureshi allegedly compared the Yogi government to “demons”. Following this, Saxena filed a complaint against Qureshi saying that the alleged remarks made by the former governor were derogatory and may lead to “communal riots” between the two communities.
For now, Aziz Qureshi has been booked under sections 153A (promoting enmity between two groups on grounds of religion, race), 153B (imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration), 124A (sedition), and 505(1)(B) (intent to cause fear or alarm to the public), a senior police officer said.
