Bhopal: The Madhya Pradesh Police have arrested three persons, including the owner and the principal of a school in Shahdol district, in connection with the wrong depiction of India's map in a school diary.

As per a report in The Indian Express, the three have been booked for sedition after a map was published in the school diary which excluded parts of Jammu and Kashmir from India.

As per the report, the owner of the Green Bells Public School Mohammed Sharif, its principal Govindchandra Das, and AK Agrawal, who runs the press that printed the school diary, have all been sent to jail.

The police acted on a complaint filed by a Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) activist.

Sharif has told the police that it was a mistake on their part to have allowed the publication of a distorted map of India.

The school is located in Budhar town, some 22 kilometres from district headquarters Shahdol, and has about 1,000 students.
