Booker winner Arundhati Roy facing prosecution in India: media

Booker Prize-winning Indian novelist Arundhati Roy could be prosecuted for a 2010 speech about occupied Kashmir after a top official signed off on the move.

A criminal complaint accusing her and several others of sedition had languished in India’s notoriously glacial criminal justice system since it was first filed in 2010.

Indian media reported that VK Saxena, the top official in the administration governing New Delhi, had given approval for the case to proceed before the courts.

Saxena’s directive said there was enough evidence for a case to proceed against Roy and her codefendants “for their speeches at a public function” in the capital.
