Adra was holding the ‘Kashmir, Dalit, Muslim Mukti’ placard at a protest organised by the Hindu Jagaran Vedike against the woman who had chanted “Pakistan Zindabad” slogans at an anti-CAA rally in Bengaluru on Thursday.
Adra was ‘detained’ on Friday for holding a “Kashmir Mukti (liberation), Dalit Mukti, Muslim Mukti” placard.
Adra, the woman who was ‘detained’ on Friday for holding a “Kashmir Mukti [liberation], Dalit Mukti, Muslim Mukti” placard at a protest in Bengaluru, has been sent to 14-day judicial custody by a court.
She was holding the placard at a protest organised by the Hindu Jagaran Vedike against the woman who had chanted “Pakistan Zindabad” slogans at an anti-CAA rally in Bengaluru on Thursday.
After Adra was spotted sitting among the protesters with placards, she was escorted out of the site as the Vedike members asked her to leave and the crowd started gathering.
A case has been registered for offences under the Indian Penal Code including creating enmity between different groups of people against the woman, identified as Adra.
Bengaluru Police chief Bhaskar Rao said Adra did not raise any slogans.
“She has been now been taken into custody for her own safety along with the placard… we will find out her background, where she has come from and who are behind her among other things,” Rao said.
The “Kashmir Mukti (liberation), Dalit Mukti, Muslim Mukti” slogans were written in both Kannada and English in the placard held by her.
Last evening, Amulya Leona had raised the “Pakistan Zindabad” slogan thrice in the presence of All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi, prompting him to denounce her act.
In the video, Asaduddin Owaisi is seen rushing back to the dais to stop the woman from chanting the slogan. As Asasussin Owaisi rushed to snatch the mike from her hands, he was joined by others who tried to remove her from the stage.
The woman, adamantly, raised the slogan again, repeatedly. Later, the police stepped in and removed her from the dais.
