INDORE: A complaint was filed today in a local court by two Congress leaders against journalist Ved Pratap Vaidik for his controversial meeting with 26/11 Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Mohammad Saeed in Pakistan and also for his alleged statement on the issue of "freedom" for Kashmir.         

Congress local unit's two secretaries Vivek Khandelwal and Mohan Kasera filed the complaint against Vaidik in the court of the Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) V P Sharma under Section 124 A (treason) and Section 132 (inciting armed forces to revolt) of the Indian Penal Code.     

The court will hear the complaint on August 5 to record the statement of the two complainants, Advocate Ashish Shrivastava who representing the Congress leaders said.   

Quoting the complaint, he said Vaidik had met the matermind of the 26/11 (2008) Mumbai attack without informing the government of India and also gave a controversial interview to a Pakistani television channel on the issue of "freedom" for Kashmir, which is "highly condemnable" and therefore, a case of "treason" and "inciting forces to revolt" should be filed against him.
