A case was registered against MP Navneet Rana over her 'voting for Congress means voting for Pakistan' remark. The case was filed in Hyderabad, under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

According to the details, the Election Flying Squad had received a complaint against the MP.

In the complaint, officials of the Election Commission stated Navneet Rana, while addressing a crowd, had said, "If you give a vote to the Congress, you are giving a vote to Pakistan."

On Thursday, in a scathing attack against AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi and his brother Akbaruddin, Navneet Rana said that if the police were removed from duty for "15 seconds, the brothers would not know from where they came and where they went".

The comments drew sharp criticism from Telangana Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy and AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi.

Rana's blistering attack came in response to a 2013 controversial speech by AIMIM MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi in which he said it would take them only "15 minutes" to balance the "Hindu-Muslim ratio" in the country if the police were removed.

Later, asked about Rana's comments, Asaduddin Owaisi told reporters he would like to tell Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give even one hour.
