Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa claimed that the student who shouted pro-Pakistan slogans at an anti-CAA event in Bengaluru had links to Naxals.
However, the Chief Minister, did not elaborate but said that forces and organisations who instigated the girl should be investigated first. “What is important is that there are organizations behind it influencing the youth, and action should be initiated against such forces. Otherwise there will be no end to it. Prima facie, it is apparent that there is a conspiracy to disturb peace in the society,” said Mr. Yediyurappa.
In the days to come, investigation taken up will prove who instigated the youth to chant
pro-Pakistan slogans, said the CM. The college student, identified as Amulya Leona, was charged with sedition after she chanted “Pakistan zindabad” at a protest against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act attended by All India Majlis-e- Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) chief Asaduddin Owaisi.
