Sedition case: Lakshadweep filmmaker moves HC for anticipatory bail

Jun 14, 2021 17:11 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Filmmaker and activist Aisha Sultana on Monday approached the Kerala High Court seeking anticipatory bail in the sedition case filed against her by the Lakshadweep Police.

BJP’s Lakshadweep unit president C Abdul Khader Haji had filed a complaint against Sultana for calling the Union Territory’s administrator, Praful Patel, a bio-weapon being used by the Centre on the island’s people.

According to Khader’s complaint, Sultana had purportedly made the remark on a recent debate on a Malayalam channel over the ongoing controversial reforms in Lakshadweep.

This sparked protests from the BJP’s Lakshadweep unit. BJP workers in Kerala had moved complaints against the filmmaker as well.
