NEW DELHI (Agencies) An Indian court on Saturday ordered registration of FIR against APHC leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, writer Arundhati Roy and five others for their speeches made at a meeting in New Delhi on October 21. The Delhi police is hereby directed to lodge an FIR under relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code and file a report in this regard on January 6, 2011 the next date of hearing, Metropolitan Magistrate Navita Kumari Bagha said. The Delhi court rejected the status report submitted by the Delhi police which said no offence relating to sedition and other charges were made out against Geelani and others. It said there were prima facie cogent evidence against the accused and asked the police to further investigate the allegations and file a compliance report. Besides Geelani and Roy, the complaint sought prosecution of five others, including Delhi University professor SAR Geelani, who was acquitted in Parliament attack case, and Sheikh Showkat Hussain, a professor of Jammu and Kashmir University. 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. The writer and social activist shared a stage with Geelani in October and backed the idea of 'azadi or freedom for Kashmir, leading New Delhi police to look into charging her with sedition. Originally, the Indian government was reported to be opposed to prosecuting her. There was no immediate reaction from the writer. In October, she said in a statement: What I say (about Kashmir) comes from love and pride. I said what millions of people here (in Kashmir) say every day. I said what I as well as other commentators have written and said for years, she said.
