An Indian court ruled Saturday that award-winning author Arundhati Roy could face prosecution for allegedly speaking out on the disputed region of Kashmir, according to a report. A court in Delhi allowed the registration of a case against Roy and Kashmiri pro-freedom leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, the Press Trust of India reported, without giving further details. Roy, winner of the prestigious Booker award for her novel "The God of Small Things" in 1997, is a fierce critic of Indian policy in Kashmir, where protests against New Delhi have claimed some 111 lives since June. Originally, the Indian government was reported to be opposed to prosecuting her.
