Students Arrested For Disrespecting National Anthem

21 Août 2017

Three students hailing from Kashmir have been booked under the Section 2 of the Prevention of Insult to National Honour Act, as they did not stand up while the National Anthem was playing at a movie hall in Hyderabad on Saturday. The whistle-blower in this case happens to be a senior police officer from Telangana.

The Express reported the students as telling police that "they had entered the theatre late and were disoriented in the dark and still trying to settle down in their seats when the anthem started".

Ces mesures faisaient office de représailles aux sanctions économiques votées par le Congrès américain contre Moscou. Les Etats-Unis disposent de consulats à Saint-Pétersbourg, Ekatérinbourg et Vladivostok, en plus de Moscou.

On Saturday, the three youth had gone to Mantra mall for watching a film but did not stand up when the National Anthem was played before the film's screening. "They were arrested after a police officer, who was also present at the theatre, levelled false charges against them", said MBT spokesperson Amjed Ullah Khan. We have taken statements from the theatre manager as well as the three boys.

However, the police refuted the claims of student by saying that several people had complained against the students to the cinema hall manager, who filed a written complaint at 9 pm. "He is a very senior officer and we can not disclose his details", said an officer. According to the police the trio was brought to the police station for enquiry, adding they belong to Jammu and Kashmir's Baramulla. As per the orders of the Supreme Court, the national anthem was played, for which the trio didn't stand up.
