The duo--Mahboob Khan and Rod Mal Malviya have been booked uner the Act. 

According to police, NSA was invoked against the two persons and they were later sent to Ujjain jail. This incident has come close on the heels of the similar action when the same law was used to incarcerate people suspected of involvement in cowslaughter in Khandwa.
