A 28-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly blocking actor Ajay Devgn’s car outside Film City in Goregaon, reported ANI.
He wanted to find out why the actor had not spoken up in support of the farmers’ protest like many other Bollywood celebrities did. Rajdeep Singh, a resident of Santosh Nagar locality in the northern suburb, is a driver hailing from Punjab, the state from which a large number of farmers gathered near Delhi for the protests. The protests are being carried out against the Centre’s new agricultural marketing laws, Mumbai police said.
“The incident took place around 10:30am. Singh stopped Devgn’s car and demanded to know why the actor had not spoken in support of the protesting farmers. A complaint was lodged by Devgn’s bodyguard Pradeep Indrasen Gautam after which Singh was arrested,” the Dindoshi police station official told the outlet.
Singh was charged under IPC sections 341 (wrongful restraint) 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation), said Senior Inspector Dharmendra Kamble of Dindoshi police station.
In his defense, the 28-year-old man said, “He is against Punjab,” following which he urged the actor to support the ongoing farmers’ protest.
