Actress and social media sensation Uorfi Javed recently made headlines when a video clip of her alleged arrest went viral on the internet. In the video, two female police officers asked Uorfi to accompany them for interrogation, citing her choice of clothing as the reason. The clip generated significant attention, with some believing it to be a real arrest and others suspecting it to be a publicity stunt.
However, it was later revealed that the entire incident was part of a fashion campaign that Uorfi was involved in. This revelation landed Uorfi and her team in trouble, as the Mumbai Police took action against them. The police issued a statement on social media, clarifying that the video was misleading, and they had registered a criminal case against those involved.
The statement read, “One Can’t Violate Law Of The Land, For Cheap Publicity ! A viral video of a woman being allegedly arrested by Mumbai Police, in a case of obscenity is not true – insignia & uniform has been misused. However, a criminal case has been registered against those involved in the misleading video, at Oshiwara Pstn under sections 171, 419, 500, 34 IPC. While further investigation is on, the fake inspector is under arrest & the vehicle has been seized too. #RealityCheck.”
