Comedy Nights Actor Kiku Sharda Arrested For Mimicking Dera Chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim
Comedy Nights With Kapil actor Kiku Sharda was remanded to 14-day judicial custody today in a case related to hurting religious sentiments.
Comedian Kiku Sharda who plays the popular character of Palak in Kapil Sharma’s show Comedy Nights With Kapil was today arrested for ‘hurting’ religious sentiments of the followers of a Sirsa based religious sect Dera Sacha Sauda.
The Kaithal police which arrested Kiku from Mumbai on Wednesday morning produced him in the local court today. He was later remanded to 14-day judicial custody. He was booked under section 295 A of IPC on January 1 on the basis of a complaint filed by the followers of sect chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim. Eight other people have been booked in the case.
The complainants had told the police that the actor mimicked the religious sect leader on a show and thus their religious sentiments were hurt. They had also protested against the actor who later apologised but they went ahead with the criminal proceedings against him.
Sources said Kiku was arrested on early Wednesday morning when he was shooting for the last episode of the popular show.
Kiku gave a statement saying, “the act was unintentional he did not meant to hurt anybody’s emotions and whatever.”
