At that time the police had registered three FIRs against Narasimhanand, including sections 505 (1) (c) (intent to incite), 509 (outraging the modesty of a woman), 504 (intent to outrage the peace) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Cases were registered under section 67 (publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form) of the IT Act, 506 (criminal intimidation).

Along with Prabhakaran, Narasimhanand also mentioned two leaders of the Khalistani separatist movement – Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale and Shabeg Singh. Singh was Bhindranwale’s military advisor and played a major role in the formation of the ‘Mukti Vahini Sena’, which supported Bangladesh during the 1971 war.
Narasimhanand then said, ‘I say we need Prabhakaran, Bhindranwale and General Shabeg Singh. Unless there is a Prabhakaran, a Bhindranwale and a Shabeg Singh in every Hindu temple, Hinduism will not survive, there will be no one to save it.
Uttarakhand Police has arrested Waseem Rizvi, now known as Jitendra Narayan Tyagi, following public outcry over the failure of the police in Haridwar Dharma Sansad case. This is the first arrest in this case.
At that time the police had also issued notices against Yeti Narasimhanand and Sadhvi Annapurna under Section 41A of CrPC.
According to NDTV, in a video taken during Tyagi’s arrest, Narasimhanand was heard telling the police, ‘You all will die.’ He had said, ‘I am with him in all three matters, has he done it alone?’
In a viral video after Tyagi’s arrest, Narasimhanand had said, ‘We have no faith in the Supreme Court and the Constitution. This constitution is the book of killing 100 crore Hindus. Those who believe in it will be killed. Those who believe in this system… Police, Politicians and Army, they will die like dogs.
