The Pune police registered a case against a man for an alleged derogatory post on actress Urmila Matondkar on social media.
The case against Pune resident Dhananjay Kudtarkar, 57, was registered at the city’s Vishrambaug police station after a Maharashtra Navnirman Sena officer-bearer flagged his post.
“The suspect using his social media account put a derogatory post against actress Urmila (Matondkar) and made sexually coloured remarks,” PTI quoted a police officer as saying.
Kudtarkar has been booked under Section 354 (A) 1 (4) (making sexually coloured remarks; shall be guilty of the offence of sexual harassment) of the IPC and relevant sections of the Information Technology Act.
He had not been arrested till the filing of this report, even as the police said they were investigating the matter.
