22 year old Mr. Patel entered in a controversial remark for allegedly advising a youth to kill policeman instead of committing suicide. Surat police have registered a case against Hardik Patel, leader of the Patel agitation in Gujarat, for sedition for purportedly asking a troubled Patel youth to murder 3-4 policemen rather than conferring suicide.
Deputy commissioner of police (DCP) Makarand Chavan has recorded the case in view of a video in which the 22 year old eager leader is seen asking a Patel youth Vipul Desai who wanted to commit suicide if the Quota benefits were not reached out to the Patel community to kill 3-4 policemen rather than killing himself. A police official from Surat said, we have checked the video’s veracity and affirmed that it’s Hardik’s voice. It’s a genuine risk to the police foundation so we have booked him for rebellion.
The sedition charge slapped by the cops is a most recent move by the Gujarat establishment to rein in on Hardik, whose agitation has held the state and constrained the authorities to try and defer the local polls. This is a second case in which the sedition has been conjured by the Gujarat cops in managing the fomentation members from the effective Patel community. Prior, Ahmedabad police booked Nilesh Patel from Morbi town for subversion for allegedly flowing messages against the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Gujarat Chief Minister Anandiben Patel and BJP president Amit Shah on social media.
