A sedition case filed has been filed against cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu in a Muzaffarpur court in Bihar on Monday for 'insulting the Indian Army by hugging Pakistan Army Chief' at the swearing-in ceremony of Pakistan PM Imran Khan.

Lawyer Sudhir Ojha filed the case in Muzaffarpur's Chief Judicial Magistrate court. Petitioner Ojha said that he has filed a case against Sindhu under sections of sedition laws.

In his complaint, he said Sidhu's gesture hurt the people of the country. "The court has admitted the case and will hear it next week," he said.

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Sunday lashed out at his cabinet colleague for hugging Pakistan Army Chief at the swearing-in ceremony of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad, saying he should not have shown affection to General Qamar Javed Bajwa.

Every day our jawans are getting martyred. To hug their Chief General BajwaI am against this. The fact is that the man should understand that our soldiers are being killed every day.
