RTI activist Raju Mahanta filed the complaint, contending that the Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has shown his “anti-India stance by addressing a terrorist with a ‘ji'”, Pradip Nath, the officer-in-charge of Morigaon police station.
Sedition case was filed against Congress president Rahul Gandhi in Assam’s Morigaon district for allegedly revering Jaish-e- Mohammad (JeM) chief Masood Azhar by suffixing honorific “ji” to his name. Apart from this on Tuesday, a social activist in Bihar had also filed a case against Gandhi in a Muzaffarpur court, asserting that the Congress chief’s reference to JeM head as “Masood Azhar ji” has hurt people’s sentiments.
An FIR has been registered in the case and police are investigating the matter, Nath added.
Azhar’s outfit had plotted the February 14 Pulwama terrorist attack, which killed 40 CRPF personnel.
