BJP’s Naveen Jindal Fails To Appear Before Mumbai Police Over Prophet Remarks


Police said there was no communication from Mr Jindal so far.

Mumbai:

Expelled BJP functionary Naveen Kumar Jindal failed to appear before the Bhiwandi police here in Maharashtra on Wednesday in a case over his alleged controversial tweets against Prophet Muhammad, an official said.

The Bhiwandi police had summoned him to record his statement in connection with the case registered here against him.

However, he did not turn up before the police on Wednesday, the official said.

The official said there was no communication from Mr Jindal so far.

The BJP had on June 5 suspended its national spokesperson Nupur Sharma and expelled Delhi BJP media head, Mr Jindal, after their alleged derogatory remarks against the Prophet led to an outrage in India and Gulf countries.

Ms Sharma, who was summoned by the Bhiwandi police on Monday in connection with a case against her, had sought a four-week time to appear before the police to record her statement, an official earlier said.
