An FIR has been registered here against Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s personal assistant on a complaint from party member and actor Archana Gautam’s father who alleged that his daughter was threatened with death, police said on Wednesday.
On a complaint from Gautam’s father, Sandeep Singh has been booked under Indian Penal Code sections 504 (intentional insult), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult modesty of a woman), Meerut Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rohit Singh Sajwan said.
