Mumbai police have registered a case against tv actor Munmun Dutta for allegedly utilizing a derogatory time period against a community, an official mentioned on Saturday.
The case pertains to the remark that the Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah actor made in a video about make-up, which she had posted on a social media platform on Might 9, wherein she used a phrase for a particular community, police mentioned.
The video had gone viral on social media platforms.
“The case against Dutta was registered on Might 26 based mostly on a criticism lodged by Naresh Bohit (40), a community chief and a employee of a political social gathering, at Goregaon police station on Might 12,” the police official mentioned.
For the reason that actor resides in Amboli police station limits, the criticism software was forwarded to that police station, he mentioned.
After the investigation, the FIR against the actor was registered on Wednesday.
She has been booked beneath IPC sections 295(A) (deliberate and malicious acts, meant to outrage non secular emotions of any class by insulting its faith or non secular beliefs) and part 3 of the Prevention of Atrocities against SC/ST Act, the official mentioned.
The actor had drawn flak for her remark, following which she had issued an apology on Might 10, wherein she mentioned that she used the phrase because of her “language barrier”.
Earlier, comparable instances have been registered against the actor in Haryana, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat, police mentioned.
