A case of alleged sedition has been filed in a local court against noted writer Arundhati Roy for her controversial remarks on Kashmir.

The complaint, lodged by one Ashish Kumar Singh in the Chief Judicial Magistrate's (CJM) court of Vijay Kumar here yesterday, was today transferred to the court of Judicial Magistrate (first class) of Amit Shekhar.

Singh, a resident of Ranchi, demanded action against Roy under section 124 of IPC (sedition) for her remarks on Kashmir at a seminar in Delhi last week.

Roy had shared the dais with pro-Pakistan hardline Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani and pro-Maoist leader Vara Vara Rao among others at the Delhi seminar.

Roy had said "Kashmir has never been an integral part of India. It is a historical fact. Even the Indian government has accepted this."
