Local Congress unit's two secretaries Vivek Khandelwal and Mohan Kasera filed the complaint against Vaidik in the court of the Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) VP Sharma under Section 124 a (treason) and Section 132 (inciting armed forces to revolt) of the Indian Penal Code.
    
The court will hear the complaint on August 5 to record the statement of the two complainants, Advocate Ashish Shrivastava who representing the Congress leaders said.
    
Quoting the complaint, he said Vaidik had met the mastermind of the 26/11 (2008) Mumbai attack without informing the government of India and also gave a controversial interview to a Pakistani television channel on the issue of ‘freedom’ for Kashmir, which is ‘highly condemnable’ and therefore, a case of ‘treason’ and ‘inciting forces to revolt’ should be filed against him.
