FRENCH WOMAN ARRESTED FOR NAKED VIDEO ON INDIAN HOLY BRIDGE
A 27-year old French woman has been arrested for making a video of herself naked on a holy bridge in the Indian city of Rishikesh; police said Saturday (Aug 29).
Police only identified the woman by her first name Marie-Helene and said she had been in Rishikesh since March, just before a nationwide coronavirus lockdown was introduced.
The woman faces charges under India’s internet law with a maximum sentence of three years jail if found guilty.
She was detained Thursday after posting footage of herself on the Lakshman Jhula, a footbridge over the Ganges river made famous by the Beatles in the 1960s and which remains a draw for backpackers and yoga practitioners.
