Friends and kin of cartoonist Aseem Trivedi today hailed the Maharashtra government for lifting sedition charges against him. Earlier in September, the cartoonist was detained on sedition charges for drawings that satirize corruption in politics. However he was later released on bail. Speaking to reporters in Mumbai, Alok Dixit, Trivedi's friend said that they were expecting the decision as the charges held no relevance. Dixit further urged provincial government to drop the other two charges under the Information Technology Act and Prevention of Insults to Nation Honour Act. The 25 years old Cartoonist was arrested after a private complaint over a series of cartoons, including one that depicts the parliament building as a lavatory buzzing with flies.
