Police sources said a case against Dharmendra has been registered on charges of IPC sections 120 (B) for criminal conspiracy, 153 (A) (promoting enmity between religious groups), 505 (2) (statements conducing to public mischief) and 506 (criminal intimidation). Sabha leaders Rajesh Pavithran, Prem, Sandeep and other functionaries will also be questioned, they said. Earlier, reacting to Dharmendra’s remarks, HMS state president Lohith Kumar had filed a complaint against him for misusing the name of the organisation to criticise the BJP government. Barke police had registered an FIR based on the complaint. Meanwhile, HMS leader Rajesh Pavithran issued a statement condemning the police for registering a case against him and others. “Police have registered cases against HMS leaders including me who were not present at the press meet,” he alleged.
