Delhi Police Special Cell has filed a First Information Report (FIR) against unidentified individuals for allegedly threatening and harassing former BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma over her alleged remarks on the Prophet Muhammad during a televised debate last month.

The FIR was registered with the Cyber ​​Cell Unit of the Special Cell under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sections on Criminal Intimidation, Indecent Insult of a Woman and Computer Act Sections .

“We have opened the investigation and are reviewing tweets and comments posted by unknown individuals on Sharma’s video,” an officer said.

On May 27, Sharma posted a tweet alleging that she and her family were being threatened online. She also blamed a fact-checker for posting her video and “inciting” hatred towards her. Sharma then posted several tweets saying her family had received death threats.

After the video of his comments on the Prophet went viral, police in Mumbai and Hyderabad accused Sharma of inciting hatred between communities and insulting religious feelings. On Sunday, the BJP suspended Sharma and another party spokesperson Naveen Kumar Jindal for their alleged comments insulting the Prophet.
