Bengaluru, Feb 21: A sedition case has been filed against the woman who raised pro-Pakistan slogans during a protest against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), police said on Friday.
A young woman, identified as Amulya Leona, on Thursday raised ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogan in the presence of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi in Bengaluru, who distanced himself and his party.
The woman urged the crowd to shout ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ after the organisers invited her to address the event organised under the banner of ‘Save Constitution’ soon after Owaisi came on the stage.
Soon Owaisi rushed to snatch the microphone from the girl and was joined by others who tried to remove her from the state.
She, however, raised the slogan again repeatedly. Later, the police stepped in and removed her from the dais.
Owaisi then addressed the gathering, saying he did not agree with the woman.
“Neither me nor my party has any link with her. We denounce her. If I knew this, I would not have come here,” Owaisi said after the incident took place.
