Maharashtra legislator Satyajeet Tambe on Saturday demanded that Mumbai police take motion in opposition to model-actor Poonam Pandey for placing out faux information of her loss of life.
A case must be registered in opposition to Ms Pandey to make an instance of her for individuals who resort to such stunts to advertise themselves, mentioned Tambe, an impartial member of the Maharashtra Legislative Council.
A day after the information of her loss of life from cervical most cancers dominated the information cycle and led to intense debate on social media — PTI by no means confirmed the loss of life in its reporting — 32-year-old Poonam Pandey introduced on Saturday that she was alive, and the faux information was printed to unfold “essential consciousness” concerning the illness.
Motion must be taken in opposition to her as she “made or printed false or deceptive info,” MLC Tambe mentioned in an announcement.
“The information of an influencer/mannequin dying of cervical most cancers can’t be a method to unfold consciousness concerning the illness. All the episode takes away the intense nature of cervical most cancers and diverts the eye fully to the influencer,” Mr Tambe mentioned.
The actor pulled a prank on most cancers survivors slightly than elevating consciousness, he added.
