Two Tamil Nadu journalists have been booked for interviewing Sri Lankan refugees and writing a news story on their perspective on the CAA-NRC issue, the India Today reported.
A reporter and a photojournalist from the the Vikatan Group were booked under Indian Penal Code sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), 447 (criminal trespass) and 505-1b (publishing material with an intent to cause fear or alarm).
The FIR claims the duo entered a refugee camp and "instigated the refugees to conduct a revolution against CAA".
They've been booked under non-bailable charges, and the police are trying to track them down.
In Tamil Nadu, the issue of Sri Lankan Tamil refugees is part of the ongoing debate on the Citizenship Amendment Act -- the law only covers illegal immigrants (belonging to six non-Muslim minority religious groups) from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
Several opposition parties have demanded that Sri Lankan Tamils be included in the purview of the legislation.
