Was Urfi Javed arrested for wearing inappropriate clothes? Mumbai Police files criminal case for violating ‘Law Of Land'
Mumbai's Oshiwara Police has apprehended an individual for his role in fabricating a video featuring Urfi Javed, a social media personality known from ‘Bigg Boss OTT’. The video, which depicted Urfi being led away by two female “police officers" for donning a backless red top and jeans at a coffee shop, rapidly spread on social media, stirring public belief and bringing undue criticism upon Mumbai Police.
The video's dialogue, questioning Javed's choice of clothing, was designed to mimic an official police inquiry, leading viewers to question the force's stance on public decency.
Mumbai Police promptly addressed the falsity of the video via social media, clarifying that the individuals involved were not their representatives and that the insignia and uniform had been illicitly appropriated.
“One Can’t Violate Law Of The Land, For Cheap Publicity ! A viral video of a woman being allegedly arrested by Mumbai Police, in a case of obscenity is not true - insignia & uniform has been misused," Mumbai Police said on X (formerly Twitter).
“However, a criminal case has been registered against those involved in the misleading video, at Oshiwara Pstn under sections 171, 419, 500, 34 IPC. While further investigation is on, the fake inspector is under arrest & the vehicle has been seized too," it added.
Urfi Javed's ‘cheap publicity’
Mumbai Police, while taking to Instagram stories and other social media platforms, has emphasised the falseness of the video, assuring the public of their commitment to uphold the law without succumbing to sensationalism, ANI reported. They reinforced that the enforcement of law is never a tool for garnering "cheap publicity" and denounced any violation of legal protocols.
