Advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha filed a petition and an order was passed by Chief Judicial Magistrate Surya Kant Tiwari to lodge a case regarding the same. Ojha reported “The CJM had passed the order on 20 August, accepting my petition upon the receipt of which an FIR was lodged today at the Sadar police station here,“.
