South Indian actress Meera Mitun was earlier booked for her reported casteist remarks on social media. She has been arrested by the Cyber Crime Wing of Tamil Nadu Police from Kerala.
She got arrested after she failed to appear before the police on August 12.
Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) leader and former MP Vanni Arasu have a complaint. The Tamil Nadu Untouchability Eradication Front had also filed a complaint against Mitun.
She was booked under seven provisions of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe Prevention of Atrocities Act. She makes this caste remake on her Twitter video.
Meera said that I am not speaking ill about members of the SC community. However, the members of the community face problems mostly because of their involvement in illegal activities and crimes.
“It is time to chuck out all the SC directors and other people from the film industry,” she said.
VCK chief and MP Thol Thiruvamavalavan had shared the video on his Instagram and stated that both the actor and her interviewer should be booked by the police.
In a video taken before her arrest, Mitun can be heard purposefully screaming and alleging that she’s been tortured and all the men in the room were police officers.
She also screamed in front of the camera and asked why a woman is being tortured. The actress alleged that the cops were harassing her.
