Thane Police on Saturday detained Marathi actor Ketaki Chitale after a case was registered in opposition to her for allegedly sharing a `derogatory’ post about NCP president Sharad Pawar on social media platforms. The post in Marathi, shared by her on Friday, was purportedly written by another person. It solely talked about the surname Pawar and the age of 80. The NCP supremo is 81 years previous. It contained phrases like “hell is ready” and “you hate Brahmins”, allegedly referring to Pawar whose celebration shares energy in Maharashtra with the Shiv Sena and Congress. “The offence in opposition to Chitale was registered at Kalwa police station in Thane on Saturday primarily based on a criticism lodged by Swapnil Netke,” a police official had mentioned earlier.
The case was registered underneath Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 500 (defamation), 501 (printing or engraving matter identified to be defamatory), 505 (2) (making, publishing or circulating any assertion, hearsay or report selling enmity, hatred or ailing will between lessons), 153 A (spreading disharmony amongst folks), he mentioned.
In Pune too, the NCP submitted a letter to the police demanding motion in opposition to Chitale.
