Controversy’s new favorite Payal Rohatgi was arrested over video on Nehru-Gandhi. Her bail plea was rejected on Monday and she has been sent to judicial custody till December 24.
The actress was booked by the Bundi police in Rajasthan under the IT Act on October 10 for the objectionable content against Motilal Nehru, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and other members of the Gandhi family.
She was served notice earlier this month and told to furnish a reply in this connection. Rajasthan Police arrested her from Ahmedabad, said Bundi Superintendent of Police (SP), Mamta Gupta.
State Youth Congress general secretary and a resident of Bundi, Charmesh Sharma, had submitted a complaint along with copies of the offensive content after which a case was registered against the actress.
Rohatgi on her social media handles–Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter–had posted the objectionable content on September 6 and 21.
