21 year old booked under NSA for posting “pro-Pakistan” photo on his Instagram account

News Desk: A 21-year-old man in Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain city was booked under the stringent National Security Act for posting an allegedly “pro-Pakistan” photo on his social media account.

Sahil Lalla was arrested after a complaint by a Bajrang Dal leader, the police said. His arrest came two hours after he put up a photo on his Instagram page where he was wearing a T-shirt with the Pakistani flag and the word “Jordan” on it.

“District convener of Bajrang Dal, Pintu Kaushal, had lodged a complaint about the matter with the Chimanganj police,” said Ujjain Superintendent of Police Satyendra Shukla. “Acting on that complaint, police arrested Sahil Lalla and recommended invoking the NSA against him.”

Lalla was also booked on charges of trying to disturb communal harmony and posing law and order problems.

On Sunday, the Ujjain district administration invoked the National Security Act against four people for allegedly shouting “Pakistan Zindabad” slogans during an event on August 19. Ten people have been arrested so far in the case.
