A complaint against the actress was filed at Shivaji Nagar police station by the office -bearers of the Pune City Congress Committee.
Payal Rohatgi has repeatedly made derogatory comments about the Nehru Gandhi family. We came across one such post, which we believe has been made recently. Subsequently, the office-bearers of the Pune City Congress committee, including Ramesh Bagwe, Mohan Joshi, Datta Bahirat, Sangeeta Tiwari and myself, met senior police officials from the cyber crime cell. A formal complaint in the case was given by Sangeet Tiwari. The police have acted on it and a case has been registered at Shivaji Nagar police station,” Indian Express quoted Pune City Congress spokesperson Ramesh Iyer as saying.
This is not the first time that the 36-year-old actor has landed herself in legal trouble. In 2019, Rohatgi was arrested by the Rajasthan police for her alleged comments against former Prime Minister, late Jawaharlal Nehru.
More recently, in the month of June, she was arrested by the Satellite Police in Ahmedabad on Friday for threatening and hurling abuse at the chairman of her society on social media. Rohatgi was later released on bail.
The Satellite police station in Ahmedabad had arrested the actress following a complaint lodged by the chairman of the society where she lives. The police have invoked IPC Sections 294(b), 504, 506(1), 506(2), and Section 67 of the Information Technology Act against the actress.
Rohatgi made her acting debut in 2002 with the film ‘Yeh Kya Ho Raha Hai?’ She was later seen on reality TV shows like ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 2’ and ‘Bigg Boss 2’.
