Payal Rohatgi arrested by Ahmedabad police for sending threats on society's WhatsApp group

Actress and ex-Bigg Boss contestant Payal Rohatgi has been arrested by Ahmedabad police for using abusive slurs and derogatory statements on social media and a WhatsApp group.

The complaint has been filed by a doctor named Parag Shah who stated that Payal hurled abuses at the society’s chairperson and also texted derogatory messages on their WhatsApp group.

Shah further alleged that Rohatgi threated to physically harm anyone who argues with her over a common play area.

Upon her arrest she was also tested for COVID-19 as per police norm.

Payal isn't new when it comes to courting controversies.

In 2019, Payal was arrested in a case relating to alleged objectionable content against the Nehru-Gandhi family on social media.

The Rajasthan Police had detained her from her Ahmedabad residence for interrogation in a case. She was sent to judicial custody by ACJM court.

Upon her release she had said, "They first put me in a filthy cell in the police station, then took me to jail where I was locked up with five hardcore criminals. It was a nightmare. We had to sleep on the cold floor. That’s where one sleeps in jail. I wouldn’t have been able to survive one more night in that jail.”
