The FIR was registered at the Tilak Marg police station on November 29 last following a direction by Metropolitan Magistrate Navita Kumari Bagha. An organisation, “Roots in Kashmir,” filed a complaint in the court saying the police had not taken any action on its complaint, filed at the Tilak Marg station on October 28, against the speeches made at the October 21 convention. On January 6, the judge clubbed three other complaints received against Ms. Roy for her speech at the convention with the “Roots for Kashmir” case. The matter will come up for hearing on February 25.
