Lucknow: UP Congress spokesperson Zeeshan Haider has filed a police complaint against senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan for suggesting that the anti-Romeo squads in Uttar Pradesh should be name after Lord Krishna.
In his complaint, the Congress leader has said that the lawyer’s statement has hurt the sentiments of Hindus. Delhi BJP spokesperson Tajinder Pal Bagga has also filed a complaint against Mr Bhushan.
Mr Prashant Bhushan had tweeted that “We have grown up with legends of young Krishna teasing Gopis. The logic of Romeo squad would criminalise this. Didn’t intend to hurt sentiments.”
He had earlier tweeted that “Lord Krishna was a ‘legendary eve-teaser.”
The tweet comes amid the outrage over the way the squads have been seen punishing couples seen together in public parks in the state.
The Allahabad high court has directed the government to ensure that guidelines were followed by the police teams and action taken as per the law.
