Sedition case against TRS MP Kavitha for saying Kashmir and Telangana were forcibly annexed to India

Hyderabad: Police have registered a case against TRS MP and daughter of Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhara Rao, K Kavitha, for her alleged comments on Jammu and Kashmir and Telangana.

Kavita had said that J&K and Telangana were both forcefully annexed to India.

Asserting that she feels strongly about J&K, she had told a newspaper India should come clean on the state.

"Few parts were not ours, we should agree, we should redraw the international lines and move on," Kavita had said.

The case was registered two days back under Sections 124-A (sedition) and 505 (statements leading to public mischief) of IPC following directions from a local court, said a South Zone police official.

A local court had last week directed police to investigate and file a case against Kavitha, the Nizamabad MP, upon a complaint over alleged remarks attributed to her. The complaint was filed by K Karunasagar, an advocate and the convener of the BJP's city legal cell.

The complainant in the petition alleged that Kavitha, in an interview, had made observations that Jammu and Kashmir and Telangana were not part of India earlier.

The police official said legal opinion is being sought on the matter for further action.
