The Mumbai police crime branch is likely to issue fresh summons to two or three organisers who stay outside Mumbai and are yet to record their statement in connection with the August 11 Azad Maidan attack.


Sources in the crime branch said of the 17 who were on stage, they had recorded the statements of the others. Commissioner of police (Mumbai) Satyapal Singh had clarified that action would be taken against the organisers only if there was evidence against them.

Sources said only five organisers gave speeches at the rally and were under the police scanner. Of these five, three speeches have been found to be provocative.

After this the police had invoked section 505 of the Indian Penal code (IPC) which is about provocative speeches.
