A man identified as Azam Ansari, who is an alleged doppelganger of Bollywood actor Salman Khan, was arrested by Lucknow Police on 8th May for disturbing peace on the streets of the city. The action was taken against Ansari after an Instagram reel from April 30 went viral where he was shooting in the middle of the road disturbing traffic. His stunts led to massive traffic jam around the Clock Tower in Lucknow. Ansari has been booked under Section 151 of CrPC.

In the video, he was performing the song ‘Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega’ from Salman Khan’s movie of the same name. He randomly walked and stopped in the middle of the road, causing inconvenience to the people passing by. Since his arrest, several other reels have gone viral on the social media platform. His Instagram account is filled with such reels made in the middle of the road, in front of monuments, religious places and even at the Railway Station.

After being detained by the Lucknow Police, Ansari’s photographs from the Police Station went viral as well in which he was visibly happy with the publicity. Journalist Saurabh Sharma shared his photograph and wrote, “Salman Khan fans never get sad. Azam Ansari, a die-hard fan of Salman khan, arrested under preventive measures for dancing anywhere on the streets of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh.”

TOI Journalist Arvind Chauhan shared his video from the Police Station and wrote, “Nawab Azam Sahab expressing his happiness after being booked under Section 151 [CrPC].”

Under Section 151 of the Criminal Procedure Code, a Police officer can arrest and detain a person for up to 24 hours without Magistrate’s orders and without a warrant.
