Udaipur: Kashmiri student booked in sedition case

A Kashmiri student who allegedly posted “anti-national” comments on Facebook after the Uri terror attack, has been booked on sedition charges.

His comments had sparked protest by ABVP activists in the city on Tuesday, prompting the college administration to suspend him for seven days.

“A case against the accused student Mudasir Rashid was registered last night under section 124 A (sedition),” police said.

The matter is under investigation and Rashid, a Srinagar resident, has not been arrested so far, they said.

Rashid who is studying engineering at a private college here, was detained yesterday after the institute director R S Vyas lodged the FIR against him.
