Amid relaxations for travel in parts of the country in Lockdown 4.0, Ranvir Shorey faced a tough time when he stepped out in Mumbai on Wednesday. The actor was stopped by the Mumbai Police when he had accompanied the husband of his domestic help to the hospital for her delivery. After the Sonchiriya star expressed his unhappiness over the entire incident, alleging ‘harassment’ over the cops planning to file an FIR and impound his car, he clarified that no action was taken against him.
Ranvir shared on Twitter that after more than eight hours, the police allowed him to go and neither an FIR was filed nor his car was impounded. The actor conveyed his gratitude to the police personnel for understanding his side of the story ‘albeit a bit late.’ He added that he may have lost eight hours, but not his faith in Mumbai Police.
Ranvir also praised Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Aaditya Thackeray and called him as a ‘shining light’ in the government. This is after Thackeray had taken note of Ranvir's tweets and asked the Mumbai Police to ensure the delivery of his car.
Whoa! Just saw this. Thanks so much. You really are a shining light in this govt. 😊🙏🏽— Ranvir Shorey (@RanvirShorey) May 20, 2020
Ranvir had tweeted on Wednesday, “@MumbaiPolice My car being impounded for taking my household help for his wife’s delivery to hospital. Officer in charge says a child being delivered is not an emergency. Please advise.”
"He said the wife and doctor could have handled it. I told him the hospital was refusing paperwork without the father. He’s not listening. Exasperating," he then tweeted.
The Sacred Games 2 actor also wrote,, “Saddened and disappointed that the transgression and highhandedness of one policeman is going to cost me my car, and an FIR against my innocent driver. Even after 3 hours, there has been no redressal of my complaints . @MumbaiPolice @CPMumbaiPolice @DGPMaharashtra.”
“3 hapless people made to wait for more than 6 hours. What are we being punished for? @MumbaiPolice @CPMumbaiPolice @DGPMaharashtra,” he then claimed.
The Angrezi Medium, however, also deleted the tweets when he termed the incident as ‘harassment’ by Officer In Charge Vijay K Kadam.
