An official claimed on Sunday that the Bhiwandi police in Maharashtra had called suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma to record a statement on Monday in connection with her alleged offensive remarks against Prophet Muhammad.
In addition, senior police inspector Chetan Kakade told reporters that expelled BJP functionary Naveen Kumar Jindal has been summoned by the Bhiwandi police in Thane district to record his statement on June 15 over his alleged controversial tweets against Prophet Mohammad.
According to him, the Bhiwandi police had filed a case against Sharma after a complaint was filed by a representative of the Raza Academy on May 30.
According to the official, they had also filed a lawsuit against Jindal.
Sharma had been summoned to the Mumbra police station in Thane on June 22 to give a statement about her remarks.
In connection with her remarks regarding the Prophet during a television debate, the Mumbai Police have called her to record a statement on June 25.
The cops had requested a video of the debate from the news station in question.
After their alleged disrespectful remarks about the Prophet sparked anger in India and the Gulf, the BJP suspended its national spokesman Nupur Sharma and dismissed Delhi BJP media chief Jindal on June 5.
