A court in New Delhi on Tuesday issued a bailable warrant against a Delhi Police official for his failure to file a status report in a complaint filed against Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for allegedly insulting Hindu religion by posing as God and holding a shoe in his hand on the cover page of a magazine.
Metropolitan magistrate Mayuri Singh issued bailable warrant of Rs 5,000 against sub-inspector Dharmender Kumar, to be executed through DCP of North East Delhi, for his failure to comply with the court's earlier order directing him to file a status report in the complaint.
"Let the status report be called from the SHO of Nand Nagri police station on July 27, the next date of hearing," the court said.
The court was hearing a complaint filed by Rajinder Singh Raja, national general secretary of a social organisation Shivsena Hindustan, seeking registration of an FIR against Dhoni, publisher and editor of a magazine.
The complainant alleged that in the April 2013 edition of the magazine, Dhoni was portrayed as God Vishnu with a sub title 'God of Big Deals' and holding products of several companies including a shoe in his hand.
He said the photograph has hurt his as well as the sentiments of thousands of Hindus and it had insulted the Hindu religion and God Vishnu.
