Man booked for obscene post on Urmila Matondkar

A 57-year-old man, identified as Dhananjay Kudtarkar, has been booked for allegedly posting a derogatory matter on actress-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar. A complaint was registered against Kudtarkar, a resident of Pune in Maharashtra after he posted the matter on social media, police said. 

The matter came to light after an MNS officer-bearer flagged the post.

Commenting on the incident, a police officer attached to Vishrambaug police station said, "The suspect using his social media account put a derogatory post against actress Urmila Matondkar and made sexually coloured remarks."

A case has been registered against Kudtarkar under section 354 (A) 1 (4) (making sexually coloured remarks; shall be guilty of the offence of sexual harassment) and sections of IT Act.

No arrest has been made so far and the investigation is underway.

Matondkar, who has acted in a number of Bollywood movies, had made her political debut as a Congress nominee from Mumbai North constituency in recently-concluded Lok Sabha elections, but lost to BJP heavyweight Gopal Shetty.
