Mumbai Police reaches Delhi, unable to trace Nupur Sharma

The suspended BJP spokeswoman has been asked to appear before Mumbai Police on 25 June at 11 AM to record her statement in the case

If those after the BJP government with the excuse of legally catching thought it was more convenient to route their complaint through police forces outside the city where she lives, they need to spare the idea a second thought. A Mumbai Police team travelled to Delhi to serve a summons to suspended Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokeswoman for her remarks about Mohammed, Islam’s prophet, where she had cited the fact that he had married a girl (Aisha) when she was 6 and consummated the marriage when she was 9-years-old.

However, an official said that they were unable to trace in the capital and so the team sent her the summons via email instead. The official also said that Delhi Police did not give their counterparts from Mumbai the “expected cooperation” regarding the matter.

The Mumbai Police team from Pydhonie Police Station had been in Delhi for the past five days to serve Sharma the summons after a First Information Report (FIR) was filed against her on 28 May.

There are cases registered with the Thane Police Commissionerate against for her comments too. 

The suspended BJP spokeswoman has been asked to appear before Mumbai Police on 25 June at 11 AM to record her statement in the case — following Kolkata Police’s summons to Sharma for her aforementioned remarks against Islam’s prophet on 20 June at the Narkeldanga Police Station. Abul Sohail, the general secretary of the Trinamool Congress’ minority cell, had filed an against her at the Contai police station.

Meanwhile, Maharashtra Home Minister Dilip Walse Patil was asked about Delhi Police not cooperating in executing summons to Nupur Sharma. He said, “It’s true. Maharashtra police’s attempts are on and Delhi Police should also co-operate.”

On 26 May, Nupur Sharma, then a spokesperson for the ruling BJP, had made the comment referred to above during a debate on India TV, sparking a massive Muslim outrage globally but only after days passed. In the meantime, it transpired that after Alt News‘ Mohammed Zubair made an edited clip of the debate, which went viral, a toolkit was made in Pakistan to corner India’s ruling party in the comity of nations.

In June, around the second week of the month, about 14 Islamic countries, including Qatar, Pakistan and Afghanistan, slammed India for the comment.

Terrorist organisations and individuals have threatened too.
