Comedy group All India Bakchod was booked by Mumbai Police Cyber Cell after its co-founder Tanmay Bhatt posted a meme on Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Police filed FIR against the group.
AIB had yesterday posted an image of a look-alike of the Prime Minister at a railway station, along with a photo of PM Modi with a Snapchat dog filter, captioned #wanderlust.
Although AIB deleted the post by evening, Twitter users did not react kindly to it.
Some called it an insult to the Prime Minister and hurting national sentiment.
Mumbai Police took note of the situation and forwarded it to their cyber crime arm.
In the First Information Report, Mumbai Police charged AIB with provisions of IT Act with a punishment of three years in prison along with monetary penalty to the tune of Rs 5 lakh.
The case was lodged by the Cyber Cell of Mumbai Police after ‘due legal consultation’, police sources claimed.
