Madannapet police station on Monday (August 11) informed the 7th Chief Additional Metropolitan Magistrate that, in accordance with the orders of the court, a case was registered against the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) MP for her alleged “seditious” statements.

She had reportedly told a meeting in New Delhi that after 15 August 1947 Indian state had forcibly merged Jammu and Kashmir and Hyderabad into its territory. She also said some parts of J&K were not part of India and were independent states.

The state BJP legal cell convener Karuna Sagar had filed the case in the court and the magistrate had ordered the police to book the case.

Police said the case was booked under Indian Penal Code section 124 (A), 153 (A) and 505 and section 156 (3) of criminal procedure code.

At the time of 1947 when British left this region, Hyderabad was a separate state under the rule of Nizam who had refused to merge his princely state with India. It forced the government of India to launch military action to bring Hyderabad into the Indian state on September 17, 1948.

Defending her statement K. Kavita said she had only restated a historical fact.
