Poonam Pandey, who has vowed to strip naked if India wins the World Cup cricket title, has been dragged to court in Bhopal, with a lawyer accusing her of depicting Brahmins in poor light.
RK Pandey also named Indian liquor baron Vijay Mallya, who included a scantily-clad Poonam in his company Kingfisher calendar, in his petition filed in the court of Bhopal's chief judicial magistrate.
Mallya has been accused of prompting Poonam to go for nudity.
"Even if Poonam does not run naked, she should be punished as she not only gave a wrong impression of the (Brahmin) community but insulted Indian culture," the lawyer told reporters.
The case will be heard today..
Where is Poonam Pandey?
After going to the media with promises of streaking down the streets if and when the Men in Blue get the World Cup home, Poonam Pandey conveniently disappeared on Saturday. And even managed to switch off her cell phone.
Sources say the 20-year-old model was pestered by calls from people, either begging her to strip or threatening should she dare 'insult Indian culture'.
Pandey on Thursday had reiterated her promise to run in the buff if India brings the Cup back home.
Pandey tweeted: "3 days to go to Complete my Promise to INDIA :)", a few hours after India thrashed Pakistan by 29 runs in the semifinal held in Mohali, near Chandigarh.
Complying with a court order, an FIR was lodged against the Kingfisher model, on the charge of obscenity. She defended her case saying this would be her way of expressing support to Team India and that she wanted to go the 'extra mileage'. Freudian slip is it Poonam? After all the much-hyped stunt has just given her extra mileage without going the mile!
