Indian booked for hoisting Pak flag at home

Jaipur, India —Indian police arrested on Monday a man for hoisting the green flag on top of his house in Jaipur, Rajasthan on Pakistan’s Independence Day.
Kapil Shastri was detained and the flag seized after locals reported he had hoisted the flag.
Police subsequently registered a case against the man under Section 153 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Shastri was found responsible for “promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race or residence,” SHO Anil Jaimini said. “Primary probe reveals the accused is not mentally fit and he picked up the flag few years ago from a slum and brought to his house.”— Reuters
