Actress Payal Rohatgi was recently incarcerated in Bundi for ppsting offensive remarks about the Nehru-Gandhi family on social media. She was relessed on bail on tuesday evening.
Payal got emotional post her release. While talking to media she said ,“I’m still numb with disbelief. How can this happen? What did I do? I am just so so relieved to be out of that ordeal. I was whisked away by the Rajasthan police from Ahmedabad as soon as they realized I had applied for bail. They first put me in a filthy cell in the police station, then took me to jail where I was locked up with five hardcore criminals. It was a nightmare. We had to sleep on the cold floor. That’s where one sleeps in jail. I wouldn’t have been able to survive one more night in that jail.”
Payal is thankful that her husband Bigg Boss 7 finalist Sangram Singh and her lawyer were able to get her out.
“My husband is a very innocent man. We have no knowledge of how the law works. This is why the Rajasthan police was able to use it (the law) against me. They claim I have not been replying to their notices. I’ve emails proving otherwise”, She added.
As Payal gets ready for a long battle ahead with the law, she sighs in relief.
“At the moment I am just grateful to be out. All I need is a warm bed. I don’t think this experience will ever leave me. I just hope I don’t have to go through it again. I believe the media has been very supportive. I want to thank everyone out there who supported me. It will take a long time to get over what I’ve gone through.” She concluded saying.
