The complaint was filed by police against AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi in Hyderabad for his decision to provide legal help to five arrested terror suspects. The case had been lodged in a court of Meerut.
BJP and JDU party are demanding action against him and want his immediate arrest.
The action has been taken against Owaisi as he wanted to give legal help to five men who was arrested by NIA in Hyderabad for allegedly being members of an ISIS module.
Telangana BJP MLA T Raja Singh ordered immediate arrest of the Lok Sabha MP from Hyderabad. He also asked the TRS government to register a sedition case against the leader of the Hyderabad-based party.
Owaisi said, the offer of legal help was being “blown out of proportion” and that the courts can take a view.
The complaint was filed with Saroor Nagar police by K Karuna Sagar, a practising advocate.
Saroor Nagar Police Station Inspector S Lingaiah told PTI, “We have received the complaint against the Hyderabad MP. No case has been registered and we are seeking legal advise.”
Bakshi also filed complaint with Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) under IPC sections 114 (abetting the crime), 115 (abetment of offence punishable with death or imprisonment for life), 117 (abetting commission of offence), 121 (waging war against the country), 121A (conspiracy to commit offences punishable by section 121), 124A (sedition), 131 (abetting mutiny), 132 (abetment of mutiny), and 200 (using as true such declaration knowing it to be false).
Senior BJP leader and Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi alleged that “Owaisi is directly or indirectly helping the ISIS which had come up with a video in which it threatened to target India. This is betrayal of the country. On the one hand you condemn the ISIS and on the other hand you support those who are involved in such acts.
“The investigating agencies should take action against him within the legal framework. Those who support terrorism directly or indirectly should be condemned,” BJP National Secretary Shrikant Sharma said in Delhi.
Sagar alleged that “the stand of Asaduddin Owaisi and his remarks is boosting the morale of anti-nationals and giving oxygen to terrorists. Owaisi is directly or indirectly helping the ISIS which had come up with a video in which it threatened to target India and this is betrayal of the country”.
The hearing on the complaint will be held on July 6, said the court.
