Mumbai: Marathi actor Ketaki Chitale, who was arrested two days ago after a case was registered against her for allegedly sharing a ‘derogatory’ post about NCP president Sharad Pawar on social media platforms, was today brought to her home in Kalamboli in Navi Mumbai to collect electronic evidence by the police. The police were at her residence for an hour where they seized her phone and laptop.
Thane crime branch and Kalamboli police teams reached her residence “Avalon” this afternoon and seized electronic equipment for investigation.
Six cases have been filed against the 29-year-old actor in five districts of Maharashtra. She will remain in police custody till May 18.
The post in Marathi, shared by her on Friday, was purportedly written by someone else.
It only mentioned the surname Pawar and the age of 80. The NCP supremo is 81 years old.
The post contained phrases like “hell is waiting” and “you hate Brahmins”, allegedly referring to Pawar whose party shares power in Maharashtra with the Shiv Sena and Congress.
“The offence against Chitale was registered at Kalwa police station in Thane on Saturday based on a complaint lodged by Swapnil Netke,” a police official had said.
