Sidhu in Pak: Bihar court to hear case

A Bihar court will hear a complaint case against Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on August 24.

PATNA, DHNS: A Bihar court will hear a complaint case against Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on August 24. The cricketer-turned-politician has been charged with sedition for hugging Pak Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa during his recent visit to Pakistan.

Sidhu, who went to Pakistan in his personal capacity to attend the swearing-in function of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, has been charged with hurting the sentiments of Indians and creating hatred among people.

“Sidhu, who went to Pakistan to attend the swearing-in of Imran Khan, hugged Pakistan General Bajwa on whose orders Indian soldiers were being killed in cross-border terrorism. It is this Bajwa who is responsible for killings of Indians. Sidhu’s gesture has hurt the feelings of Indians,” said the lawyer Sudhir Kumar Ojha, in his complaint against the BJP-turned-Congress leader.

Ojha has lodged the complaint in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) Hari Prasad. In his complaint, the lawyer has pleaded that Sidhu be booked under Section 124 A (sedition), Section 153 B (imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration) and Section 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Justice Prasad has decided to hear the case on Friday.
