Jawaharlal Nehru
.
 
The complaint was filed by Youth Congress leader Charmesh Sharma and the case was registered under sections 66 and 67 of the IT Act.
The complainant in the FIR said that the video, which was posted on September 21, can hamper India's relations with other nations as it posts objectionable comments with pictures in the context of former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri's death. After much controversy, Payal had even apologized over the matter.
