Thiruvalla: Police have registered a case against former minister KT Jaleel over his controversial remarks on Jammu and Kashmir. Keezhvaipur police booked the MLA based on a petition moved by Arun Mohan, an RSS worker from Pathanamthitta, in Thiruvalla First Class Magistrate Court.

The court directed the Keezhvaipur police to register a case against Jaleel and investigate the matter. Following this, a case was registered based on two IPC sections mentioned by the petitioner.

Jaleel had used the terms ‘India-occupied Kashmir’ and ‘Azad Kashmir’ in a Facebook post published during his visit to the valley on August 12.

He later withdrew the controversial comments.
