Mumbai police arrives in Delhi to arrest Nupur Sharma, leader untraceable

New Delhi: 

The beleaguered former BJP spokesperson is untraceable as several cases have been registered against her in different states over her controversial remarks on Prophet Muhammad. One such case has been registered against her after Irfan Sheikh, the joint secretary of a Muslim outfit, Raza Academy lodged a complaint with Mumbai police.

The Mumbai Police team has been staying in the national capital ever since the case was registered with it and looking for Nupur Sharma. A team that is in Delhi to question Ms Sharma couldn’t find her, sources said.

The Mumbai Police have enough evidence to arrest the former BJP spokesperson, Maharashtra Home Ministry sources have said.

Nupur Sharma also faces first information report, or FIR, filed by the Kolkata Police based on a complaint by Trinamool Congress minority cell general secretary Abul Sohail. The Kolkata Police have summoned her to record her statement on June 20.

Another FIR has been filed by the Delhi Police against Ms Sharma over her comment on Prophet Mohammad.

Nupur Sharma was suspended by the BJP after her comments on Prophet Muhammad on TV drew furious reactions and official protests from at least 15 nations, including Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Several Gulf nations had summoned Indian envoys and expressed condemnation over what they called “anti-Islamic statements” by BJP spokespersons.

Nupur Sharma withdrew her statement “unconditionally” and claimed she was reacting to “continuous insult and disrespect towards our Mahadev (Lord Shiva)”.

The government, attempting to defuse the anger, told the Gulf nations that the comments reflected views of “fringe elements”, even though Ms Sharma was the BJP’s spokesperson.
