Mumbai Police Take Legal Action Against Urfi Javed for Spreading Misleading Video
In a recent development, the Mumbai Police have initiated legal proceedings against social media influencer Urfi Javed for sharing a misleading video that allegedly tarnished their image by depicting a fake arrest. According to an official statement, the video in question went viral on social media platforms, showing a woman being arrested by the Mumbai Police for an alleged obscenity case.
However, Mumbai Police promptly clarified on the social media platform that the video was not authentic and that their uniform and emblem had been misused. In response to this deceptive video, a criminal case has been registered under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) at the Oshiwara Police Station.
The sections invoked include Section 171, Section 419, Section 500, and Section 34 of the IPC. Section 171 pertains to “wearing the attire or bearing a token used by a public servant with fraudulent intent,” while Section 419 addresses cheating through personation. Section 500 deals with defamation, and Section 34 pertains to acts done by several persons in furtherance of a common intention.
As a result of the ongoing investigation, the individual who portrayed a fake inspector in the video has been detained. Furthermore, the vehicle associated with the incident has been seized as part of the legal proceedings.
The Mumbai Police are taking this matter seriously, as the dissemination of false information can have serious consequences, not only for the reputation of the police force but also for public trust in law enforcement. The case against those responsible for creating and sharing the deceptive video serves as a reminder of the importance of responsible social media use and the legal consequences that can follow the spread of false information.
The investigations are expected to continue, and authorities are determined to ensure that those responsible for this misleading video face appropriate legal action.
