Three arrested for raising ‘pro-Pakistan’ slogans in Noida procession

New Delhi, October 21 (KMS): Three persons were arrested on for allegedly raising ‘pro-Pakistan’ slogans during a religious procession taken out in Noida city of India’s Uttar Pradesh.

Arrests were made after a video of the incident went viral on social media and the Noida police in its investigation found the video as authentic.

The procession was taken out in Sector 20 police station area on Tuesday to mark Eid Milad-un-Nabi.

The police were also present on the spot.

“We have arrested three people in this case as well as got the video investigated, prima facie it appears that someone spoke Pakistan in the middle of the Hindustan Zindabad slogans, due to which the crowd also spoke Zindabad,” Noida DCP Rajesh S. told media.

Noida Additional DCP Ran Vijay Singh said, “We got the video examined by experts and after investigation it was found that there was no tampering with the video. We have also registered a case against the accused under relevant sections.”

However, analysts believe that such types of actions like pro-Pakistan sloganeering are carried out through the men associated with Hindu extremist organizations including the ruling BJP in the Muslim gatherings to malign Muslims and justify their suppression.
