Ex-BJP minister's brother arrested for 'abusing' J&K CM Mehbooba Mufti

Monday, June 11, 2018

Jammu: After hiding for nearly 20 days, the Jammu and Kashmir Police has arrested Rajinder Singh, brother of BJP leader Lal Singh, from Rajasthan in connection with a case related to alleged abuse of state Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti during a public rally, officials said here today.

The police cracked the case with the help of technical experts and pinpointed Rajinder's location in Udaipur of Rajasthan. Immediately, a team was sent to Udaipur where help from the local police was sought in nabbing the accused, whose purported remarks on a video against the chief minister created a flutter with political leaders cutting across the party lines demanded strict action against him.

Singh, while participating in 'Dogra Samman rally' organised by his brother Lal Singh, had purportedly used very bad language against the chief minister and had also abused her.

Police registered a case on May 21 under Section 501 (printing or engraving words that are defamatory) and section 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Ranbir Penal Code (RPC) and Section 66A of the Information Technology Act. Based on the FIR, a Lookout Notice was issued against Rajinder Singh by Chief Judicial Magistrate Kathua.

"Based on application filed by SHO Police Station Hiranagar to the effect that accused Rajinder Singh, involved in FIR no 187 of 2018 for offences under sections 501, 509 of RPC and sections 66/67 of I.T Act registered with Police Station Hiranagar, is evading arrest and is hiding/concealing himself...," the order read.
