Yesterday, Yuvika Chaudhary was arrested for allegedly using a casteist slur in a video, which she uploaded on social media. Yuvika, who is also the wife of Bigg Boss 9 winner Prince Narula was booked under the SC/ST Act, was later granted interim bail by the Punjab and Haryana High Court.
According to ANI, Yuvika's lawyer Ashok Bishnoi said, 'My client has joined the investigation as per the guidelines given by the High Court and she is on interim bail now (in a case of alleged offensive remarks against Scheduled Castes on a social media platform)."
It happened six months back when Yuvika used a casteist slur in a video blog, which did not go down well with many social media users, and she was trolled brutally for it. Later, she apologised for hurting people's sentiments and stated that she didn't know the word meaning.

Her husband, Prince Narula, also supported his wife and commented, "Baby jo hua galti se hua. Don't worry main aapke saath hoon aur aapne maafi bhi maang li hai so I love you."
