Mumbai: Following Urfi Javed’s complaint to the Maharashtra State Commission for Women (MSCW) accusing BJP leader Chitra Wagh of threatening her, the MSCW asked the Mumbai Police Commissioner to review the model’s demand for security to investigate.
In her written complaint to MSCW, the television actress and social media influencer alleged that Chitra Wagh filed a complaint against her for political mileage and threatened to hit her during a media interaction.
Javed and her lawyer Nitin Satpute met with MSCW President Rupali Chakankar last week and filed a complaint against Wagh for “threats and criminal harassment.” In her request for safety, the actress indicated that she felt unsafe outside her home.
According to the attorney, “the complaint was filed against IPC felony U/s 153(A)(B), 504, 506, 506(ii) for threatening and criminal intimidation to harm the public domain.” The lawyer also requested preventive measures under relevant sections of CrPc.
Wagh, head of the women’s wing of Maharashtra BJP, had filed a police complaint against Javed for ‘being openly naked in the streets of Mumbai’ and demanded that she be ‘arrested’. Earlier this month, she lashed out at Javed on Twitter, asking whether or not the women’s committee would do anything about it.
The Maharashtra State Commission for Women has written a letter to the Mumbai Police Commissioner asking the police to investigate the model and demand of social media influencer Uorfi Javed seeking safety.
