New Delhi: Amulya, the girl who raised the ‘Pakistan zindabad’ slogan at an anti-CAA rally in Bengaluru, has been sent to 14-day judicial custody. She was earlier denied bail by a judicial magistrate here.

Amulya raised ‘Pakistan zindabad’ slogan at an anti-CAA rally organised by AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi here on Thursday. A case has been registered under Section 124A (Offence of sedition) of the Indian Penal Code against her.

“We have registered a suo moto case under Section 124A (sedition), 153A and B (promoting enmity between different groups and imputations, assertions prejudicial to national integration). Once formalities are completed, we will produce Amulya before a judicial magistrate,” B Ramesh, DCP Bengaluru (West) said.

Commotion marred the function of Owaisi here when the girl managed to reach the stage and started shouting slogans — ‘Hindustan Zindabad’ and ‘Pakistan Zindabad.’

She wanted to differentiate between ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ and ‘Hindustan Zindabad’ but organisers and cops on duty whisked her away. Owaisi himself rushed to take the mic from her. He was having a one-on-one with the public here.

Owaisi said: “I condemn this statement. The woman is not associated with us. Humare Liye Bharat Zindabad Tha, Zindabad Rahega.”
