Agra: 3 Kashmiri students held for 'celebrating' Pak T20 win, Yogi says sedition

Students charged with “cyber terrorism” for updating their WhatsApp status to hail Pakistan’s victory against India in T20 World Cup 

Three Kashmiri students of an engineering college in Agra were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly committing “cyber terrorism” by updating their WhatsApp status to hail Pakistan’s victory against India in a T20 World Cup cricket match.

The three students of the Raja Balwant Singh Management Technical Campus were arrested on Wednesday evening following an FIR lodged against them, a police said.

The FIR against them included, among others, section 66F of the Information Technology Act dealing with the offence of cyber terrorism, punishable with life imprisonment on conviction.

UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath, reacting to the arrests, has said that sedition charge will be invoked against those celebrating Pakistan cricket win.

Members of some right-wing outfits barged into the college campus on Tuesday and staged a protest against the college and its students.

The college administration has suspended the three J&K students, and has also demanded action against right-wing activists for sloganeering and hooliganism inside college campus.
