UP: Husband files police complaint as wife celebrates Pakistan’s victory over India | Bareilly News


BAREILLY: A woman has been booked for allegedly celebrating Pakistan‘s victory over India in a recent T-20 cricket match. The incident took place in Uttar Pradesh‘s Rampur and an FIR was lodged based on her husband’s complaint.
At least nine others have been arrested by the UP police so far for celebrating Pakistan’s victory against India. However, unlike the others, the woman was not charged with sedition.
The husband had lodged a police complaint against his wife on October 29.
After pressure was exerted by a right-wing group, an FIR was finally registered under section 153a (promoting enmity) of the IPC, along with section 67 of the IT Act. The couple was married nearly four months ago.
This incident was reported from a village under the jurisdiction of Azim Nagar police station and the complaint was lodged at the Ganj police station by one Ishaan Miyan, against his wife, Rabia Shamsi. After the station house officer refused to register an FIR, Ishaan approached the superintendent of police, Ankit Mittal, along with the screenshots of the social media statuses of his wife. Thereafter, an investigation was ordered and Rabia’s statement was recorded by police. The FIR was registered against Rabia on Friday night after the initial investigation.
Rabia says that her phone was used by her nephew who she alleges uploaded the pictures. She said that she was unaware of the fact. She is currently living with her parents and had earlier registered an FIR against her husband for domestic violence.
Superintendent of police of Rampur, Ankit Mittal, told TOI, “On November 4, a complaint was lodged by Ishaani against his wife Rabia, who had celebrated Pakistan’s victory over India and used abusive language against Indian players, along with sharing objectionable pictures on her social media account. After the initial investigation, an FIR has been registered. We are not going to arrest her as of now.”
