NEW DELHI. Lakshadweep Police on Thursday filed a sedition case against actor-model Aisha Sultana for saying that the Modi government used administrator Praful Khoda Patel to deploy COVID-19 as a ‘bio weapon’ against people of island.
The complaint against Aisha Sultana was filed by Bhartiya Janata Party‘s Lakshadweep unit president Abdul Khader for spreading false news about the spread of COVID-19 on the island.

As soon as the news broke on Twitter, the micro-blogging platform erupted with varying reactions. Some called for doing away with draconian laws such as sedition and UAPA, others felt that serious allegations of state conspiring to kill its own people need to be leveled with facts.

‘Dissent can’t be suppressed’

‘Abuse of sedition law’

‘Sultana hasn’t been booked for criticizing Modi, stop lying’

Logic gone for a toss

‘Country is not BJP’s ancestral property’

‘Criticism is a right’

‘Resist the colonial rule’
