The Uttar Pradesh Police on Thursday registered a case against Congress MP Shashi Tharoor and six other journalists which include Rajdeep Sardesai, Mrinal Pande, Vinod K Jose, Paresh Nath, Zafar Agha and Anant Nath for instigating violence on Republic day (January 26) through their social media posts.

The Uttar Pradesh police have lodged an FIR at NOIDA Sector 20 against Thiruvananthapuram MP Tharoor and others including an unidentified person under sedition laws, following a complaint by a NOIDA resident, for spreading unverified news of a farmer dying due to police violence.

On January 26, soon after the Republic day celebrations, farmers demanding the repealing of three farm laws, took out a tractor rally which became violent after a group of farmers diverted from the pre-decided path and reached ITO where clashes with police took place. Later, some protestors stormed into Red Fort and hoisted a flag at the ramparts of Red Fort, attracting severe criticism against the violence on Republic day. The visuals from January 26 showed the violent mob vandalising DTC buses, protestors with swords in their hands, and tractors running amok on the Delhi streets.
