On Thursday, senior Congress leader and former Minister of Madhya Pradesh Digvijaya Singh raised questions on the matter that the National Security Act (NSA) was imposed on three persons who are suspected of a cow killing case in Madhya Pradesh’s Khandwa district.
Mr. Singh told reporters in Madhya Pradesh’s Rajgarh that “NSA should not be imposed for this. The accused should have been charged under other relevant laws.”
Nadeem, his brother Shaqeel and Ajmal, three were accused of killing a cow in Kharkhali village of Khandwa district’s Moghat area. After that NSA was slapped against them.
The police informed that Nadeem is a criminal and this was not the first time that he has been charged for such crimes adding that he also has been involved in many incidents of crime. In order to maintain harmony, police have taken the step, said the officials.
After Kamal Nath-led Congress government came to the power in the state this has been the first incident of a cow killing in which the NSA was invoked.
As per reports sources Mr. Singh on being asked his view on the construction of Ram Mandir he replied that the Congress has never opposed it.
“The party respects all religions… The Congress neither asks to cast vote nor collects donations in the name of religion,” said Mr. Singhvi.
