FIR Registered Against Payal Rohatgi For Alleged Defamatory Video On Mahatma Gandhi And Jawaharlal Nehru; Deets Inside
Legal troubles seem to be mounting for actress Payal Rohatgi, courtesy, one of her social media videos. A case has been registered against Payal Rohatgi for allegedly using objectionable words against Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi in a video shared on her social media. Confirming the same, ANI tweeted, “A case has been registered against actress Payal Rohatgi in Pune for allegedly using objectionable words against Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi & Rajiv Gandhi in a video shared on social media, under sections 153 (a), 500, 505(2) and 34 of IPC.”

According to media reports, a complaint against the actress was filed at Shivaji Nagar police station by Pune District Congress general secretary Sangeeta Tiwari.

Indian Express quoted Pune City Congress spokesperson Ramesh Iyer as saying, “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.”


This is not the first time that Payal Rohatgi has landed herself in legal trouble. Back in 2019, the actress was arrested by the Rajasthan police for her alleged comments against former Prime Minister, late Jawaharlal Nehru.

She was also arrested by the Satellite Police in Ahmedabad for threatening and hurling abuse at the chairman of her society on social media. Rohatgi was later released on bail.
