Bigg Boss 9 contestant and actress Yuvika Chaudhary was arrested by the Haryana Police on Monday after she used what appears to be a very offensive term for the Scheduled Caste community in a video featuring her husband Prince Narula.

A Dalit rights activist, Rajat Kalsan, had filed a complaint against her on the basis of her unacceptable remark against the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes community. The Om Shanti Om actress started invoking the hatred of the community 5 months back when she used the word in a video. Apparently, her husband, in that video, appeared to be getting ready. However, Yuvika did not like his get up and hence used the afore mentioned casteist slur to describe it. Little did she know that she was going to attract a lot of criticism.

Having realised the magnitude of her word usage, she immediately took to her social media handle to apologise to her fans, saying that she did not use the word intentionally and that she wouldn’t even dream of deliberately hurting anyone.

However, she has been released on interim bail. Her lawyer,¬†Ashok Bishnoi said, “My client has joined the investigation as per the guidelines given by the High Court and she is on interim bail now.”
