The crime branch has found several objectionable items in the laptop and mobile phone recovered from Sharjeel.

Urging Muslims at Shaheen Bagh, he had vowed to cut off North-east from the rest of the country. Imam had said, “If 5 lakhs Muslims are organised then we can cut the North-east from rest of India. If we cannot do permanently, at least we can cut North-east from India for months.”
