A Bihar court on Saturday ordered the filing of an FIR against former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Farooq Abdullah over his recent remarks that allegedly insulted the Indian Army.

Abdullah, also a former union minister, on November 27 in Jammu said: “Pakistan administered Kashmir will remain a part of Pakistan and Jammu and Kashmir that of India”.

Local lawyer Thakur Chandan Kumar filed a case against Abdullah over the statement, which he felt insulted the Indian Army and violated the constitution.

The court of the chief judicial magistrate in Sitamarhi district, after hearing the case, ordered that an FIR be filed against Abdullah in Dumri police station.
