AGRA: A Delhi-based social media influencer was on Sunday remanded in 14-day judicial custody till November 28 for trespassing into a Krishna temple in Vrindavan, where entry is forbidden at night.
Gaurav Sharma and his associates are alleged to have entered the premises “with their shoes on” by climbing over wall at midnight and filming the area. As per popular belief, no one is allowed to enter the temple at night since it is held that Lord Krishna and Radha perform ‘raslila’ at night at the place and they shouldn’t be disturbed.
As per SP (city) MP Singh, Sharma said he has been running his YouTube channel for past five years and earns Rs 50,000-Rs 60,000 per month from it. He has around 45 lakh subscribers. “My cousin told me there’s a place in Vrindavan, where no one enters at night, as it is believed that misfortune strikes those who do so. I decided to make a video of the area around midnight,” he said. He confessed to uploading the video too. Soon after it was uploaded, an FIR was registered against unidentified persons under IPC and IT Act.
