The Vakola police arrested Bollywood Khiladi Akshay Kumar early on Monday morning for the obscenity case that was registered against the actor and his loving wife Twinkle in April.
Akshay came to the police station at around 9:00 am, surrendered and was arrested under sections 294 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code.
However, he was released on bail of Rs 950, like his wife was earlier in April.
Police Inspector S Kapse of the Vakola Police said, “Akshay, accompanied by his legal advisors, came to the police station at around 9:00 am this morning.”
“We arrested him at 9:30 and let him off on bail. The case will now go to court where it will be decided if he is guilty or not,” he added.
The case will now be shifted to the court, where Akki and Twinkle could confront three months of detention if they were found guilty.
In April, Anil Nayyar, a self-proclaimed social worker, lodged a complaint with the Vakola police claiming to have been breached by Twinkle unbuttoning her hubby’s jeans during a fashion show.
A case was filed a few days later and since Akshay was outside India then, Twinkle surrendered before the police.
She was let out on a bail of Rs 950.
A spokesperson of Akshay Kumar said “As a law abiding and responsible citizen, Akshay Kumar, on his return from an overseas shoot, insisted on meeting the police with regards to this case.” Kumar’s spokesperson also said, “Akshay doesn’t want to comment on the complaint as the matter is now sub judice.”
