Would probe Azmi’s statement: R R Patil


Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil today said the state government would initiate probe into the controversial statement of Samajwadi Party leader Abu Azmi in Lucknow yesterday.

“We will investigate the statement and if he is found guilty a case will be registered,” Patil told.

Azmi has stoked a controversy by saying at an election rally that the Muslims who did not vote for his party were not “true Muslims”, and their “DNA” should be tested.
