Delhi Police has booked Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) research scholar Sajid Bin Sayed for allegedly "promoting hate" through a tweet, where he accused Indian Army and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) of 'devising genocide of Kashmiris.'

Sayed, President of Campus Front of India in his post on Twitter said: "Indian Military execute system genocide of Kashmiris which is devised by RSS. The BJP govt should stop their territorial greed and ready to accept Kashmiris' right to self-determination guaranteed by the UN. It's high time to intervene in the issue by international bodies. #Kashmir."

It should be noted that the Campus Front of India was launched under guidance of radical Islamist organisation Popular Front of India (PFI).

However, the tweet does not appear to be on Sayed's timeline anymore.

In another tweet on 12 July, Sayed had accused the government of plotting ethnic cleansing in Kashmir.

"We have received a written complaint and on the basis of the complaint an FIR under sections 153 A and 504 of IPC has been lodged. Legal action to follow accordingly ," said a senior police officer.
