Jaipur: A Vishwa Hindu Parishad activist has lodged a police complaint in Rajasthan's Chittorgarh district against lawyer-politician Prashant Bhushan over his remarks on Lord Krishna while criticising the "anti-Romeo" drive in Uttar Pradesh.

Pankaj Tiwari filed the complaint on Sunday evening alleging that Bhushan has "hurt religious sentiments" through his comments, and demanded action against him.

"The complaint is being probed and no FIR has yet been registered," SHO Chittorgarh Kotwali Omprakash said on Monday.

"Romeo loved just one lady, while Krishna was a legendary Eve teaser. Would (UP CM Yogi) Adityanath have the guts to call his vigilantes Anti-Krishna squads?" Bhushan said in a tweet on Sunday that set sparks flying.

As the controversy erupted, he tried to control the damage by tweeting that his remarks had been distorted and he had no intention of hurting religious sentiments.
