FIR against singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya
Mumbai, Jul 14: An FIR was today registered against Bollywood singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya on charges of public obscenity and outraging modesty of a woman, after AAP leader Preeti Sharma Menon filed a complaint at the Cyber Cell.
In her complaint, Menon said that she had tweeted to the Mumbai Police Commissioner about Bhattacharya's use of "obscene" language on social media towards a woman journalist.
The singer had recently sparked controversy by tweeting that the murder of an Infosys techie in Chennai was the result of "love jihad".
However, when a Delhi-based journalist objected to his tweet, the singer had allegedly replied with abusive comments.
