Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that sedition law would be invoked against those celebrating Pakistan’s victory over India.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has ordered the UP police to register a case of Sedition against those who were celebrating Pakistan’s victory over India in the T20 Cricket World Cup match that took place on October 24, informed the Chief Minister’s Office on Thursday.

The students were suspended by the college administration after a police complaint was filed against them by local BJP leaders.

The students have been booked under IPC Section 153 A (promoting enmity between different groups), 505 (1)(B) (with intent to cause, or which is likely to cause, fear or alarm to the public) and Section 66 F of the Information Technology Act, the police said.

The faculty members of the college said several members of right-wing Hindu outfits had allegedly barged into the campus and staged a protest against the students.

“Those celebrating Pakistan’s victory will face sedition charges: CM Yogi Adityanath,” said the CMO in a tweet with a snippet of a newspaper clipping reporting the above-mentioned order passed by the Uttar Pradesh government.
