JAIPUR: Some people were booked for allegedly shouting pro-ISIS slogans at a rally in Rajasthan's Tonk district, police said today.

The rally was organised yesterday in Malpura town in protest against Hindu Mahasabha activist Kamlesh Tiwari's alleged derogatory remarks on the Muslim community.

"During the rally, which started from a mosque and passed through the town, some people shouted slogans favouring the terror organisation ISIS," SP Tonk Deepak Kumar said.

"The matter was brought to my notice by policemen, who were deployed in security arrangements. At least five of the accused were identified on the basis of a video footage," he said.

An FIR was lodged today with Malpura police station against the identified as well as unidentified persons for shouting 'ISIS Zindabad' under section 153 (A) of IPC (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion etc, and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony).

"There were inputs that they also shouted pro-Pakistan slogans, but this is not seen in the video footage. The matter is very serious and is being investigated thoroughly," he said.
