The feast was organized during the 'urs' of Sheikh Peer Baba in Salat village in Charkhari area on August 31, they said.

The FIR was registered on Wednesday after the intervention of BJP MLA Brijbhushan Rajpoot, who visited the area on Tuesday and some villagers raised the matter with him.

"The biryani was deliberately served to hurt the sentiments of Hindus. Strict action is needed in the matter," Rajpoot told reporters.
