Muzaffarpur police orders closure of sedition case against
Muzaffarpur (Bihar), Oct 9 (PTI) Police here on Wednesday
ordered closure of a sedition case lodged against close to 50
acclaimed artists and intellectuals who wrote a letter to
Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier this year seeking his
intervention in the rising incidence of mob lynching.
Muzaffarpur SSP Manoj Kumar Sinha said order has been
issued by him for closure of the case as investigation so far
revealed that allegations were levelled against the accused
out of "mischief" and "lacked substance".
The FIR was lodged at the Sadar police station last week
upon the order of the Chief Judicial Magistrate which had
forwarded a petition filed by local advocate Sudhir Kumar
