Model-actress Poonam Pandey, who was last seen in the film ‘The Journey Of Karma’, has been arrested by the Mumbai Police on Sunday for the violation of the ongoing nationwide COVID-19 lockdown, according to a Times Now report. The report states that Poonam Pandey and one of her companion were seen wandering outside without any reason and hence, a case has been registered against her at Marine Drive Police Station in Mumbai under sections 188, 269 and 51 (B) of the IPC. It is also being said that the police has seized a BMW car.
“A case has been registered against Pandey and Sam Ahmad Bombay (46) under sections 269 (Negligent act likely to spread infection of a disease dangerous to life) and 188 (Disobedience of order duly promulgated by public servant) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and under provisions of the National Disaster Act,” senior police inspector Mrityunjay Hiremath told PTI.
Earlier, Poonam Pandey made headlines when she filed a complaint in the Bombay High Court against actress Shilpa Shetty’s husband, businessman Raj Kundra, and his associates. The actress had alleged that Raj Kundra and his associates had been illegally using content featuring her even after a contract between the two parties was terminated. Kundra and his associate Saurabh Kushwah denied the charge and even claimed that they hadn’t received any notice.
Poonam Pandey has featured in Bollywood films like ‘Nasha’, ‘Aa Gaya Hero’ and ‘The Journey of Karma’, but failed to impress the audience with her acting skills.
