YouTuber Bobby Kataria is soon to be arrested by Uttarakhand Police for drinking alcohol and threatening the police while sitting on a chair and stopping traffic in the middle of the road in the state capital Dehradun.
A case was registered under sections 342, 336, 290, and 510 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and 67 IT Act.
Cantt Police Station in the capital city has obtained a non-bailable warrant against Kataria from the District Court.
SHO Rajendra Singh Rawat on Thursday said the police obtained a non-bailable warrant against the accused. He informed that teams of Cantt Police are being sent to Haryana and its other locations for his arrest.
Kataria was in the news after he was allegedly found to be smoking inside a SpiceJet flight that surfaced on the internet.
The airline later said that the action was taken as the passenger was put on a no-flying list by the airline for 15 days in February 2022.
However, the accused social media influencer Balvinder Kataria alias Bobby Kataria claimed that it was a dummy plane and it was a part of his shooting in Dubai.
“The video in which I was seen smoking is not a normal aeroplane, it was a dummy plane, and that was a part of my shooting in Dubai. Taking lighter inside the plane is not allowed,” said Kataria.
