Maharashtra legislator Satyajeet Tambe on Saturday demanded that Mumbai police take motion towards model-actor Poonam Pandey for placing out faux information of her loss of life.
A case must be registered towards Ms Pandey to make an instance of her for many who resort to such stunts to advertise themselves, stated 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 revealed to unfold “vital consciousness” concerning the illness.
Motion must be taken towards her as she “made or revealed false or deceptive info,” MLC Tambe stated in a press release.
“The information of an influencer/mannequin dying of cervical most cancers can’t be a method to unfold consciousness concerning the illness. The complete episode takes away the intense nature of cervical most cancers and diverts the eye solely to the influencer,” Mr Tambe stated.
The actor pulled a prank on most cancers survivors slightly than elevating consciousness, he added.
