Youtube singer Varun Bahar, who is famous for his viral song ‘Jo na bole Jai Shri Ram, bhej do unko Kabristan’ has been arrested by the Uttar Pradesh police from Gonda district on Friday.
According to reports, Varun Upadhyay, also known as Varun Bahar, has been arrested from Bandarah village in Mankapur late last night for allegedly uploading provocative songs on the social media, the police said.
He shot to fame after he posted a song on YouTube which translates to “Those who do not chant Lord Ram’s name should be sent to the cemetery.”
Varun Bahar had released a song titled “Jo na bole Jai Shri Ram, bhejo unko Kabristan”, which has been found objectionable by many. An FIR was lodged in the Hazratgan police station in Lucknow against Varun Bahar alleging that his song was inciting violence.
As per reports, all singer Varun’s YouTube videos have also been deleted.
The Uttar Pradesh will produce Youtube singer Varun Bahar in the court later in the day.
