Arrest warrants were issued by a local court against former Bihar minister and BJP leader Giriraj Singh for his inflammatory speech during a poll meet in the district.

Sub-divisional Judicial Magistrate Amit Sekhar issued the warrants against Singh for his alleged remarks that people who do not vote for Narendra Modi will have to find a place in Pakistan.

Singh is facing charges under IPC sections 153 A (promoting enmity between classes), 295 A (maliciously insulting religion or religious beliefs of any class) and 298 (uttering any word or making any sound in the hearing or making any gesture, or placing any object in the sight of any person, with intention to wound his religious feelings).

He is also facing charges under the People’s Representation Act lodged by the Bokaro police in the FIR against him on April 21 for his alleged inflammatory speech during an election meeting at a place under Harla police station in the district on April 18.

Singh is also facing another FIR lodged by the Deogarh district police on the same charges.
