HC Deb 07 June 1921 vol 142 cc1698-9W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Secretary of State for India what were the cir- cumstances attending the trial of Swami Govind Anand, at Karachi.; and what was the result of the trial?


The Swami was a leading non-co-operator of Karachi. He was charged, in the middle of April, with sedition and with acting so as to cause enmity between different classes of His Majesty's subjects. But I have no detailed information as to what he had said or done. He was convicted and sentenced to five years' imprisonment.
