Arrest warrants were on Wednesday issued by a local court against BJP leader Giriraj Singh for his inflammatory speech during a poll rally.

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

Mr. Singh is facing charges under IPC Sections 153 A, 295 A and 298.

The BJP leader 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.

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