Mumbai: Goregaon Police arrested a man for giving rape and life threats through WhatsApp to actor and social media influencer Urfi Javed.

Identified as Naveen Giri, the accused has been booked under Sections 354 (A) [sexual harassment], 354(D) [stalking], 509, 506 [criminal intimidation] of the Indian Penal Code as well as relevant sections of IT Act.

The social media influencer is currently in Dubai and was reportedly detained by the police for allegedly shooting a video in a revealing outfit.

A report in Times of India claimed that Urfi was detained as the outfit she chose to wear while shooting her video was termed inappropriate to be worn in public as per the country's laws.

However, the actress later clarified that her clothes had nothing to do with the Dubai police landing on the sets of her shoot, but rather, it was some miscommunication by her production team regarding the timings of the shoot at the public place.

Meanwhile, Urfi has been the centre of several controversies this year. Recently, a complaint was filed against her by a Mumbai-based lawyer for allegedly committing "illegal and obscene acts in public places and on social media".

Not just that, but a few days ago, Urfi had called out a group of teens on social media for allegedly calling and texting her abuses and threats.
