Suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma, who was summoned by the Bhiwandi police over her controversial remarks against Prophet Mohammad, will not appear on Monday.

Sharma has sought time to appear before the police to record her statement, a senior official said. However,  there are no specifications on how much time Sharma has been granted.

The Bhiwandi police in Thane district had registered a case against Sharma over her remarks about the Prophet during a TV debate, following a complaint lodged by a representative of the Raza Academy on May 30, he said.

They had also registered a case against expelled BJP functionary Naveen Kumar Jindal over his alleged controversial tweets against Prophet Mohammad and asked him to record his statement on June 15, an official earlier said.

Earlier, the Mumbra police in Thane asked Sharma to appear before them on June 22 to record her statement over her remarks.
