Controversial BJP legislator Sangeet Som said on Friday that people like Sharjeel Imam, who talk about "breaking India", should be "shot dead publicly".
Som, who is an accused in a riot case himself, said: "The women sitting on protests have no work, a probe is needed to find out the source of funding of these protests. As far as people like Sharjeel Imam, who talk of breaking India, are concerned, such people should be shot dead publicly."
Imam, a JNU student is in police custody following his controversial remark about "cutting off Assam" from India.
Som's statement came in the context of anti-CAA protests at Delhi's Shaheen Bagh and Lucknow's Clock Tower, where hundreds of women have been staging a sit-in against the new citizenship law for over a month.
