Jindal seeks security as a result of Prophet remarks: Delhi Police provide cover for Nupur Sharma

Even as the party’s former media head, Naveen Kumar Jindal, has demanded security and cited a threat to his life, Delhi Police has provided security personnel to Sharma and her family, days after a case was filed against unknown persons for allegedly sending death and rape threats to former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma.

The BJP suspended Sharma and expelled Jindal on Sunday over alleged derogatory remarks about the Prophet, which sparked outrage and protests. Sharma, according to sources, has called the police several times in the last week, alleging that she and her family have been harassed because of remarks she made about the Prophet during a TV debate last month. The Delhi Police have filed a complaint and have asked Twitter to join the investigation and assist the cops.

Sharma filed a complaint with the Delhi Police’s Cyber Cell on May 27, alleging that she was receiving death threats and that she was the target of “targeted hatred,” according to police. The next day, a FIR was filed with the Special Cell under IPC Sections 506 (criminal intimidation), 507 (criminal intimidation by anonymous communication), and 509 (criminal intimidation by false communication) (insulting modesty of a woman).

Sharma filed a second complaint during the investigation, alleging that a group of people were promoting enmity/hatred on social media about the incident.

“In this case, IPC Section 153A (promoting enmity between different groups) was added after an examination of the said complaint. “We’ve sent Twitter notices and are waiting for a response,” an officer said. Meanwhile, Jindal wrote to Delhi Police Chief Rakesh Asthana, claiming that suspicious elements have been loitering around his house for the past few days and that he is concerned for his safety. Jindal’s security detail had previously been assigned six PSO and CRPF personnel, but this was withdrawn in September 2021.

“On social media, my address has been made public. Foreign countries are threatening me and my family members through social media. Some hardliners have openly stated that whoever kills Naveen Kumar Jindal will receive a reward,” he wrote. “In light of the current situation, I respectfully request that you restore my security and, if necessary, increase it.”
