Hyderabad, January 13: Taking action against the actor Siddharth for passing a sexiest remark on badminton champion Saina Nehwal, Hyderabad police have filed a complaint against the actor under the relevant section of the Indian Panel Code and IT Act.
The complaint has been registered by a lawyer, Zonal Incharge IT, and social media managers of BJP Telangana, Neelam Bhargava Ram and Prerna Thiruvaipati. According to the DCP, the basis of the complaint, a case has been registered under Sections 509 of the Indian Penal Code and 67 of the Information Technology Act. An investigation has been taken up and notice will be served on Siddharth.
On January 6, while reacting to Saina Nehwal's tweet over Prime Minister Narendra Modi's security laps, Siddharth made the sexiest remark on her to insult Saina in very bad manner. After much backlash, Siddharth issued a apology for it and called it as bad joke.
Saina had condemned the comment and said that she had lost respect for the actor. "Yeah, I’m not sure what he meant. I used to like him as an actor, but this was not nice. He can express himself with better words but I guess it’s Twitter and you remain noticed with such words and comments, " Saina said.
