Shashi Tharoor, Rajdeep Sardesai among others booked for sedition

Case filed for spreading rumours surrounding a farmer’s death on Republic Day

  • Police should not only register a case, but imprison such people immediately, request for their fast-track trials and seek harsh punishment!
  • This incident shows the depth to which  journalists like Rajdeep Sardesai and the ilk have sunk into. Such journalists are detrimental to the society!

Noida (U.P.) – Multiple police cases have been filed against Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, India Today journalist Rajdeep Sardesai, National Herald Group Editorial Advisor Mrinal Pande, reporters Zafar Agha, Paresh Nath, Anant Nath and Vinod Jose under the IPC sections related to misreporting, spreading disharmony, inciting violence, sedition, etc. The development came after the accused had disseminated unsubstantiated reports that a farmer died in police firing during the farmer’s tractor rally on Republic Day.
