Hyderabad lawyer files complaint against Kejriwal for cartoon on JNU row

The complainant accused the Delhi CM of hurting religious sentiments of Hindus.

Hyderabad: A city-based advocate has filed a complaint against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, accusing him of hurting religious sentiments of Hindus by posting a cartoon over JNU row on Twitter, police said on Wednesday.

K Karuna Sagar, in a complaint lodged with Saroornagar Police Station on Tuesday, said that the Delhi CM had posted a cartoon over the JNU row on Twitter which was carried by an English daily.

He alleged that the cartoon "hurt" his religious sentiments and also the sentiments of crores of Hindus, and sought for necessary action against Kejriwal by registering a case, Inspector S Lingaiah said.

"No case has been registered so far...the complaint has been forwarded for legal opinion. We will act accordingly based on the legal opinion," the Inspector said.

Kejriwal had posted a cartoon on Tuesday, which depicted a Hanuman-esque figure assuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi that public attention has been diverted towards JNU from other pressing issues.
