Urfi Javed Arrested For Wearing Inappropriate Clothes In Public Places? Fact-Check

A video got circulated purporting to show Urfi Javed being arrested by police for wearing improper clothing in public areas.

Verified accounts on twitter, including Shubham Sharma (“@Shubham_fd“) tweeted “Urfi Javed is detained by Mumbai police for wearing inappropriate clothes in public places.

What is the Actual Truth About the Video? : Fact

In actuality, Urfi had staged a publicity stunt by having a man pretend to be an inspector and two women play constables. Her arrest for wearing clothes has no bearing on this. Those in the video have been charged with a crime for improper use of uniforms and  misusing insignia.

We visited THE TIMES OF INIDA, which published an article on the same incident on Nov 3, 2023 with the headline “Actor Urfi Javed, four others booked for defaming Mumbai police”. The Oshiwara police in Mumbai registered a case against the actor for defaming the Mumbai Police and making false claims after doing a publicity stunt.

The official twitter account of @MumbaiPolice tweeted “One Can’t Violate Law Of The Land, For Cheap Publicity ! A viral video of a woman being allegedly arrested by Mumbai Police, in a case of obscenity is not true – insignia & uniform has been misused. However, a criminal case has been registered against those involved in the misleading video, at Oshiwara Pstn under sections 171, 419, 500, 34 IPC. While further investigation is on, the fake inspector is under arrest & the vehicle has been seized too. #RealityCheck” on Nov 3, 2023 after the video went viral.

D-Intent’s Fact-Checking Results:


Media outlets circulated a scripted video of Urfi Javed without verifying the claims made by an attention-seeker.


Claim : A video of Urfi Javed being detained by police has gone viral, with the claim that she was arrested because of wearing inappropriate clothes in public place.

Fact : The truth is that Urfi planned the stunt by hiring two women to play constables and a man to pose as an inspector. It has nothing to do with her arrest beause of her clothes. A criminal case has been filed against the participants in the video for misusing insignia and uniforms.
