NEW DELHI: A police complaint has been filled in Delhi on Wednesday against actor Soni Razdan for her controversial remark on Afzal Guru.  

Advocate Rajeev Kumar Shrivastav, practising at Supreme Court, has filed a complaint at Tilak Marg police station in Delhi against Ms Razdan’s “provocative” tweet that the executed Kashmiri terrorist Mohammad Afzal Guru was made a “scapegoat” for the 13 December 2001 attack on Indian Parliament.  

 

“Soni Razdan has been playing with the sentiments of Indian citizens for cheap publicity a-nd it is really condemn-able,” Mr Kumar said in his letter to the police seeking her apology.

“This is a travesty of justice. Who is going to bring back a man from the dead if he is innocent? This is why the death penalty is not to be used lightly. And this is why there also needs to be a solid enquiry into why Afzal Guru was made the scapegoat,” Ms Razdan had tweeted.
