Man booked for offering reward for chopping off Nupur Sharma’s tongue

Gurugram: The Nuh police has booked a man for allegedly declaring a reward of Rs 2 crore for cutting off the tongue of now-suspended BJP leader Nupur Sharma over her remarks on Prophet Mohammed during a TV debate.

The action by police came after a purported video of Salaheri resident Irshad Pradhan declaring the reward surfaced on social media.

The video showed him asking a Youtuber to cut off Sharma’s tongue and get the reward on behalf of the entire Mewat region.

Raids are being carried out to nab the accused, police said.
