Marathi actress Ketki Chitale, arrested in connection with an objectionable post on social media against Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, was released from jail on Thursday. However, Ketki did not talk much to the media after leaving the jail. He said Jai Hind Jai Maharashtra in answer to most of the questions. In a conversation with the media, he said that when the time comes, then I will talk. Earlier, the court had ordered to send Ketki Chitale to judicial custody till June 1. Let us inform that Ketki had made an objectionable post against Pawar, after which the Goregaon police station had also registered a case.

Earlier, the National Commission for Women (NCW) also held a hearing against the arrest of Marathi actress Ketki Chitale for her objectionable post on social media about Sharad Pawar and said that the police should not have acted on the basis of political vendetta. Special Inspector General (Law and Order) Milind Bharambe appeared before the commission on behalf of the Maharashtra Police Chief. NCW President Rekha Sharma presided over the hearing in this matter. The commission said that during the hearing it sought an explanation from Bharambe as to why the defamation provision was made in the FIR and who was the complainant. Not only this, he was also asked why action was taken only against Ketki despite the post being shared by several people earlier, and whether proper legal process was followed before arrest.

The NCW sought to know the action taken by the police against the women NCP leaders who attacked Ketki outside the police station and why Section 66A of the IT Act was invoked in this case even though this section has already been passed by the top court. Canceled. The commission also questioned Bharambe about the action initiated by the Maharashtra Police in several other cases, most recently due to alleged political vendetta.

In a statement, the commission said, “Under Section 41A of CrPC, the police have to give notice to the accused before arrest and in non-cognizable cases the prior permission of the magistrate has to be taken. However, the police failed to comply with this mandatory provision of the law.” The statement said that the matter has been adjourned till further action.
