Following talks with leaders of the Muslim body Samastha, the CM said this week that a final decision will be taken on the matter only after detailed discussions and until that time the existing system will continue. Following this development, Samastha decided to not be part of the protest.
According to police they received about 12 complaints related to this statement and based on these complaints the case was registered.
