The Maharashtra government on Monday assured the Bombay High Court that it would not arrest actress Ketaki Chitale her in twenty-one First Information Reports (FIRs) lodged against her for allegedly reproducing a derogatory poem against Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Chief Sharad Pawar on Facebook..A division bench of Justices Nitin Jamdar and N R Borkar was told that a total of 22 FIRs have been lodged against the actress apart from 4 non-cognizable complaints (NC) with regards to her objectionable post."A statement is made before us by the prosecution that it would not proceed to arrest the petitioner (Ketaki) with regards to the 21 FIRs, till further orders of this court. The same is accepted," the Court noted its order..Chitale was arrested on May 14 on the ground that she made disparaging remarks about Pawar’s illness, appearance and voice and also called him corrupt in a post that she shared on her Facebook profile, which was a Marathi poem attributed to another person.The poem mentioned the surname (Pawar), age (80) and physical ailments which the NCP leader is also suffering from.Soon after the post, an FIR was lodged at Kalwa police station in Thane district under Sections 500 (defamation), 501 (printing or engraving defamatory matter) and 153A (promoting enmity between different groups) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Subsequently, 21 more FIRs were registered against the actress. She is, however, out on bail after a Thane court ordered her release in the very first FIR lodged in Kalwa. .In her petition, the actress submitted that the enthusiasm shown by the Police in registering the multiple FIRs against her proved that she was being targeted with an object of striking fear in the minds of the people."An invisible hand is targeting the petitioner and there is a concerted effort to strike fear in minds of people of Maharashtra in general and the petitioner in particular so as to deter everyone against coming out with any expressions of views that would offend some 'Pawar'," her plea said.The matter would be heard next on July 12.
