Saahil Choudhary was arrested by the cyber cell police from Mumbai in Haryana on Monday for posting abusive content against women on social media. The police took him in to the custody after a lawyer filed a complaint. The 33-year-old YouTuber was produced in a local magistrate court and remanded in police custody till October 1, according to sources.
According to the police, Saahil Choudhary was booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act for insulting a woman's modesty using word, gesture or act, along with intentional insult and spreading defamatory, mischievous content. He had uploaded videos on his social media and he was seen abusing women in them. He confessed of uploading them to attract followers.
"In one of the videos, the accused had also posed as a journalist associated with a national news channel and spread abusive content. As a stern action against these acts, the accused was held from Faridabad, Haryana, and brought to Mumbai." The Free Press Journal quoted a senior police official as saying.
