The Bihar police have registered an FIR against absconding men involved in the chanting of pro-Pakistan and anti-India slogans in Araria district of the state on Thursday.

A video surfaced on the internet showing three men raising pro-Pakistan and anti-India slogans in the district.


The locals of the district had demonstrated against the alleged chanting of such slogans. They also took out a rally demanding an action against the men involved.

The police have conducted a search operation against the absconding men. 

Media reports have said that the supporters of the newly elected representative in Araria were involved in the chanting. 

The bypoll for Araria seat was necessitated following the death of RJD MP Mohammed Taslimuddin. 

 RJD's Sarfaraz Alam was declared the winner of the region on Wednesday beating his opponent Pradip Kumar Singh of BJP.

Araria is a Muslim-dominated area with over 40 per cent of the population belonging to the religion.
