He has been booked below Sections 295 (A) and 509 of the Indian Penal Code and despatched to Roshnabad Jail, Haridwar police station SHO Rakinder Singh Kathait stated.
Section 295 (A) offers with deliberate and malicious acts meant to outrage non secular emotions of any class by insulting its faith or non secular beliefs whereas part 509 offers with phrase, gesture or act meant to insult the modesty of a girl.
This got here hours after the police instructed that the non secular chief was arrested for objectionable remarks on girls, and never for hate speech on the Dharam Sansad or non secular meeting.
“Yati Narsinghanand has been arrested for derogatory comments against women, not the Haridwar hate speech case right now. He has been issued a notice in that case so far. He will be remanded for the hate speech case too, the procedure is on. We will include the hate speech case details also in the remand application,” the police instructed NDTV earlier Sunday.
Sources told NDTV the case towards Narsinghanand is predicated on a criticism filed earlier this month for his objectionable and derogatory remarks towards girls of different religions. The FIR invokes hate speech fees, along with fees of insulting girls, as per the report.
Narsinghanand, the controversial priest of Dasna temple in Ghaziabad, had organised the ‘Dharma Sansad’ occasion in Haridwar from 17 to 19 December the place alleged hate speeches towards Muslims have been delivered.
The Uttarakhand Police on Saturday picked up Yati Narsinghanand from his dharna website in Haridwar and introduced him to a police station, Haridwar Superintendent of Police (City) Swatantra Kumar instructed PTI. However, the officer stated, it was technically not an arrest.
Narsinghanand is among the many individuals named within the FIRs lodged over hate speeches on the Haridwar “Dharma Sansad” or non secular meeting final month. He was picked up from the place he was sitting on a dharna in protest towards the current arrest of one other accused within the case, Jitendra Narayan Tyagi.
Two FIRs are lodged in Haridwar towards greater than ten individuals, together with Tyagi, Dharamdas Maharaj, Annapurna Maa, Narsinghanand and Sagar Sindhuraj Maharaj. A particular investigation staff is probing the case.
Tyagi was previously referred to as Waseem Rizvi and altered his title after changing to Hinduism. Tyagi who headed the Uttar Pradesh Shia Waqf Board earlier than changing to Hinduism was the primary particular person to have been arrested in reference to the case a few days again.
Further motion will depend upon how the investigation progresses, the official stated. Both Tyagi and Narsinghanand are amongst these named accused within the FIRs lodged in reference to the occasion.
