Lucknow: An FIR has been registered against filmmaker Shirish Kunder with Hazratganj Police for allegedly making derogatory remarks against Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Aditya Nath Yogi.

The FIR was registered on Friday based on a complaint filed by Amit Kumar Tiwari, Secretary of Thakurdwara Trust of Ayodhya, said Deputy SP Avnish Kumar Mishra.

 

Kunder had written on Twitter: "Hoping a goon will stop rioting once he's allowed to rule is like expecting a rapist to stop raping once he's allowed to rape (sic)".

In another tweet, he had said: "Going by the logic of making a goon as CM so that he behaves, Dawood can be CBI director. And Mallya - RBI Governor (sic)."
