Kannada actor Chetan Kumar is imprisoned in Parapana Agrahara Prison on his birthday after being imprisoned for a tweet to a judge in the High Court.
Chetan was sent to jail on Tuesday after tweeting to a judge who is currently hearing a petition over the Hijab line in Karnataka regarding the rape trial.
Karnataka police have registered the suo-moto case under IPC Sections 505 (2) (statements that cause public mischief) and 504 (intentional insults that induce security disruptions).
A heartfelt activist, Chetan Kumar confronts corruption, joint politics and fascism. He is always involved in protests by farmers, workers, Dalits and Adivasi. A devoted socialist, Chetan was a dissident and pro-Kannada.
He was also involved in the Film Industry for Rights and Equality (FIRE), an organization that addresses the issues of women, writers and workers in the Cannada film industry.
Chetan made his debut with KM Chaitanya, who directed his first film, Aa Dinagalu (2007). It revolved around the underworld of Bangalore in the 1980s and became a huge hit with the masses.
Regarding actor KM Chaitanya, “He grew up in a family involved in social issues. His brothers were challenging the elections of the Green Party in the United States. You accidentally or accidentally do it. Chetan stayed in India for research as a full-bright scholar and worked in collaboration with the National Drama School in Bangalore, when we met Chetan and made him a movie. I decided to make him appear. If he hadn’t entered the sandalwood industry, I think he would be either an activist or a researcher, because both are passionate about it. “
Chaitanya described the arrest as follows: Unfortunately, many avengers have been arrested. It may or may not be Vendetta, but Chetan should be given the opportunity. “
