The arrest followed a complaint from the BIEC, which included attachments of Qureshi’s “objectionable” posts. In one of the posts, Qureshi reportedly wrote, “When ‘I’ is replaced by ‘We’ India becomes wendia, meaning we will end India,” along with other inflammatory remarks.

The case has been registered under Sections 505(1)(B) and 153B of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), which deal with causing fear or alarm to the public and assertions prejudicial to national integration, respectively. The police are continuing their investigation.

Indian Express quoting a senior officer reported that Qureshi, who has been in Bengaluru for the past 11 months, is currently in police custody.
