Post On Pawar: I Was Hit, Molested In Police Custody, Alleges Actress Ketaki Chitale

Mumbai: Actress Ketaki Chitale, who was arrested and sent to prison for allegedly posting a defamatory and derogatory poem against NCP chief Sharad Pawar, has alleged that she was molested and hit while she was kept in police custody.

“I was unlawfully picked up from my house, unlawfully put behind bars without any arrest warrant and notice. But I knew I hadn’t done anything illegal. I was true, so I could face it,” the Marathi actress told India Today.

“I was molested, I was hit, I was beaten. There was a toxic black colour under the guise of ink thrown at me while I was in police custody,” Ketaki added.

Ketaki, arrested over a Facebook post on May 14, was granted bail on June 22.

“I came out with a smile because I was relieved. But I am out on bail. The battle is still going on,” Chitale said, adding that she has received bail in just one of the 22 FIRs registered against her.

Speaking on the controversial post, Ketaki said it mentioned a certain ‘Pawar’ but some people interpreted it as Sharad Pawar.

“I did not insult anyone through my post, people interpreted it that way. People who interpreted it that way, are they accepting that Sharad Pawar is like that? If he is not, then why did they file an FIR against me?” she argued.
