A SMALL-TIME Marathi actor has been arrested in Thane for allegedly posting objectionable posts on the Facebook page of Maharashtra Urban Development Minister Eknath Shinde, officials said on Tuesday. The accused, identified as Mayuresh Kotkar, who has acted in some Marathi serials and films, was nabbed following a complaint lodged by Shiv Sena corporator Yogesh Jankar. Jankar, in his complaint last Friday, said that Kotkar posted allegedly defamatory and inciteful content on The FB page of the Minister which could have triggered violence between communities. Following the plea, the Shreenagar police station investigated and nabbed Kotkar. He was produced before a Thane court which sent him to judicial custody.
