Several NCP activists directed their fury toward Ketaki Chitale by saying that she should be admitted to a mental asylum and that the cost of her treatment will be borne by the Nationalist Congress Party. Some NCP workers even manhandled Ketaki when she was being escorted in a police van from Kalamboli police station. A mob of NCP workers also threw ink on the actor.
Although FIRs against Ketaki Chitale have been filed in Pune, Pimpri and Thane, it was the Thane crime branch that arrested her. Ketaki is booked under IPC Sections 500 (defamation), 501 (printing or engraving defamatory matter) and 153A (promoting enmity between different groups).
