Republic Day Violence: Delhi Police Files Case Against Activist Yogita Bhayana Over Tweets

New Delhi: The Delhi Police has sent a notice to social activist Yogita Bhayana over her Twitter posts on the Republic Day violence in the national capital.

Cops have asked her to appear for questioning.

The notice has been sent to the social activist asking her to appear before the police in a case registered under Indian Penal Code sections 153 (wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot), 153A (promoting enmity between different groups), and 505(1)(b) (circulating statement, rumour that may induce somebody to commit an offence against the State or against the public tranquility).

Meanwhile, Bhayana accused the Delhi Police of “suppressing” her voice, and said her only “crime” was that she had been supporting the farmers protesting against three Central agricultural laws.
