The TV actor was arrested by the Malad police for allegedly defaming a woman on Twitter
Sangram Indrajit Singh, who plays a negative character in Yeh Hai Mohabbatien has been arrested under the Information Technology Act for allegedly defaming Soniya Singh, who works as a casting consultant for films and television.
Reportedly, Sangram posted an old photo of Soniya at a police station on Twitter, saying she was there for fraud and disturbing peace. “Soniya Singh at police station for fraud and disturbing peace intentionally,” the TV actor tweeted along with the picture, after which Soniya filed a complaint against him at Malad police station.
Apparently, Sagram and Soniya have been friends in the past. However, recently, the two had a fall out, when the Yeh Hai Mohbbatein actor alleged that she was not providing him with good roles in the industry. After the argument, Sangram used the photo and posted it on the micro-blogging site in order to defame Soniya. However, the woman claims that she was not arrested by the police. In fact, she had gone to a police station for some personal work and Singh had a photo of her at the station.
“Based on the complaint, Singh has been arrested under the IT Act. He was produced in the Bandra court on Wednesday and later given bail,” a senior police official was quoted by a tabloid.
Besides Sangram, two of his friends, actor-model Karan Arora and Karan Kundra are also being investigated for their involvement in the case. Apparently even they had posted the same image on Twitter, which they obviously deleted later.
