Mumbai Police arrest man for sending rape, death threats to Uorfi Javed
Mumbai Police on Wednesday arrested a man for giving rape and death threats to social media influencer and television actor Uorfi Javed. The Goregaon Police registered an FIR against the accused Naveen Giri under sections 354(A) (sexual harassment), 354(D) (stalking), 509, 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) as well as IT Act.
A few days ago, Uorfi took to Twitter and shared the photo of the man who threatened her and a screenshot of the offensive messages she received on WhatsApp. The Daayan actor tagged Mumbai Police on Twitter and wrote that she has been receiving rape and death threats from this man every day from new numbers. She added that unfortunately, she is not in India, so she can’t file an official complaint and can’t do anything, but here is his photo to make everyone aware of this guy.

Javed had earlier attacked author Chetan Bhagat after he made a contentious remark about the Bigg Boss OTT contestant at a literary event. Chetan Bhagat, in an event, blamed Uorfi Javed’s outfits for distracting boys.
Bhagat said On one side, there is a youth who is protecting our nation at Kargil and on another side, we have another youth who is seeing Uorfi Javed’s photos hiding in their blankets.
Uorfi Javed later slammed Chetan Bhagat by sharing screenshots of the author’s old WhatsApp chats. She also took to Instagram and wrote that men like him will always blame women rather than accept their shortcomings. Stop promoting rape culture, you sickos out there. Blaming women’s clothes for the behaviour of men is so 80s, Mr Chetan Bhagat.
On the professional front, the actor was last seen in the reality TV show MTV Splitsvilla Season 14.
