Ayesha Sulthana interrogated by Lakshadweep police, let off

KOCHI: Filmmaker Ayesha Sulthana, facing allegations of sedition in Lakshadweep, was let off by the Lakshadweep police on Thursday after interrogation.

Sulthana was interrogated by the Kavaratti police on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday in the case registered on the basis of a complaint filed by a BJP leader in the Islands. Emerging from the police station, Kavaratti, after nearly a 3-hour-long interrogation, Sulthana said, "Everything is over. I am told I can go back to Kochi. I will reach Kochi tomorrow or a day after."

Ahead of appearing for Thursday's probe, Sulthana said during the nearly 8-hour-long questioning on Wednesday, the police had asked whether she had any contacts abroad.

"They checked my WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook accounts. They were searching whether I have any links with foreign countries," she said in a video circulated to the media.
