On the complaint of Rajat Kalsan, convenor of the National Alliance for Dalit Human Rights, the Hansi (Haryana) police filed an FIR against actress Munmun Dutta aka Babita Ji of Sony TV popular sitcom Tarak Mehta Ka Ulta Chasma. This FIR has been filed according to many sections of the IPC. The Scheduled Castes and Tribes Atrocities Act is also included.
Let us state that all of the sections in which a case against Munmun Dutta has been filed are non-bailable, and there is no provision for anticipatory bail in these sections.
As a result, Munmun Dutta alias Babita Ji seems to be in trouble due to the filing of this lawsuit. Munmun Dutta, aka Babita Ji, from Tarak Mehta Ka Ulta Chashma, posted a video on Instagram on a channel that used some objectionable word. She said she had to come on YouTube, and she wanted to look decent. The incident happened on the 9th of May, Sunday.
Munmun Dutta seeking apology
The next day Babitaji of TMKOC also posted an apology about the choice of word in the video and also removed her video. She wrote that as she is not a native Hindi speaker, the choice of word was accidental and not intentional. She did not want to hurt, intimidate or insult anyone’s sentiment.
In addition, she used an objectionable word. On 11 May, the National Alliance for Dalit Hariyuman Rights convenor Rajat Kalsan submitted a written complaint and a CD containing a video of the accused Munmun Dutta to the Superintendent of Police of Hansi, alleging that Munmun Dutta made a derogatory remark against the Scheduled Caste society.
Hansi Superintendent of Police Nikita Gehlot then directed the Hansi police station to file an FIR. Following that, a formal FIR was filed against Munmun Dutta at the Hansi police station.
