The complainant refers to one of the episodes of Dua’s Youtube show called ‘The Vinod Dua Show’, where he talks about former Congressman Jyotiraditya Scindia joining BJP, with Kumar calling his remarks “degrading”.

In the FIR, Kumar alleged Dua misreported the Delhi riots and the protests against the new citizenship law (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC), and blamed the Prime Minister, Home Minister and BJP’s Kapil Mishra for the riots.

The five-page FIR has been registered under sections 290 (public nuisance), 505 (statements conducing to public mischief), and 505 (2) (sale of printed or engraved substance containing defamatory matter) of the IPC.
