Lucknow, March 25: As soon the controversial tweets of Bollywood producer Shirish Kunder grabbed eyes all around the social media, a complaint was filed in the Hazratganj police station for tweeting against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
An FIR was filed against Kunder on Friday for his “objectionable” and “abusive” post on Yogi Adityanath, police said.
In the complaint filed by Amit Kumar Tiwari he cited that referring to the Chief Minister as “Hindu Hriday Samrat Sant Shiromani Yogi Adityanath”, quoted extensively from a tweet done from Kunder’s official handle on March 21, wherein he says: “Going by the logic of making a goon as CM so that he behave Daud can be CBI director and Mallya RBI governor.”
Tiwari complained that in the tweet, the Chief Minister has been compared to international terrorist Dawood Ibrahim and demanded that appropriate legal action be taken against the film producer.
According to an official, an FIR has been lodged and a probe initiated following the complaint.
Kunder, who however has deleted the tweets concerned, later extended an apology on the social site.
“I unconditionally apologize. I never meant to hurt anyone’s feelings or sentiment,” he tweeted.
