In an incident that throws Bihar’s security into a tizzy, a video has surfaced on social-media platforms that shows three men shouting anti-India slogans in Araria where RJD’s Sarfaraz Alam defeated his nearest BJP rival Pradip Kumar Singh in the recently concluded Lok Sabha bypolls.
The video, believed to be captured outside the residence of Sarfaraz Alam following his win, shows three persons chanting pro-Pakistan and anti-India slogans.
As soon as the local administration learnt about the incident, they filed an FIR. During the preliminary investigation, it was found that the video was captured during a victory rally after RJD leader’s win and that it was filmed outside his residence.
Meanwhile, police have arrested three persons in connection with the case. They have been identified as Sultan Aazmi, Shehjad and Aabid.
Locals also locals took out a rally demanding action against the persons raising anti-national sologans.
India TV doesn’t verify the authenticity of video.
The incident comes in the backdrop of firebrand BJP leader Giriraj Singh alleging that Araria will become ‘a hub of terror’ after RJD’s win.
“This is not only a threat to Bihar but also to the country. It will be a hub of terror,” he had said on Thursday.
The Araria Lok Sabha seat had fallen vacant following the demise of RJD MP Mohammad Taslimuddin in September last year. Bypolls were held on March 11 and result was declared on March 14. Sarafaraz Alam, son of Taslimuddin, defeated Pradip Kumar Singh of BJP by over 60,000 votes.
