Bollywood singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya created another controversy after he used ‘abusive’ language while addressing a woman journalist on Twitter on Sunday. Delhi Police registered a complaint against him after Swati Chaturvedi approached them.
Responding to this, Abhijeet told news agency ANI that it would not have been an issue if he had used English language to say the same thing. The singer had called Chaturvedi ‘ besharm budiya’ after she criticised him for giving a communal colour to murder of Infosys techie Swathi in Chennai.

He also added that the people who were ‘attacking’ him were anti-nationals and that the police would not pay any attention to their complaints. “They can’t scare me with a police complaint,” said Abhijeet.
The entire controversy began when Janta Ka Reporter editor-in-chief Rifat Jawaid objected to one of the singer’s tweet in which he had said that Swathi’s murder in Chennai was a case of ‘Love Jihad’.
