Remember the YouTuber who made his pet dog float up in the air by tying helium balloons? The same Delhi-based YouTuber – Gaurav Sharma – has now run into fresh trouble after he entered Vrindavan’s ‘Nidhivan Raj’ and recorded a video there.
Notably, Gaurav Sharma and his associates allegedly entered the premises of the temple by the scaling and recorded a video of the area on night of November 6, 2021.
Gaurav Sharma reportedly confessed before the police that he entered the temple premises at night and shot the video at the ‘holy’ place on the night of November 6 along with his cousin Prashant and friends Mohit and Abhishek. “I had visited my uncle’s place in Mathura on November 6. My cousin Prashant told me that there is 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 and arrived at the Nidhivan around midnight with my cousin and friends and after shooting the video for 15-20 minutes, we came out,” TOI quoted the YouTuber as saying.
He uploaded the video on November 9, 2021. However, it was taken down after priests protested against shooting inside the place.
A case under section 295A of the IPC and section 66 of the IT Act was registered in Vrindavan police station after a complaint by Rohit Goshwami, the priest of Nidhivan Raj, officials told PTI.
Nidhivan Raj is an sacred religious site where Goddess Radha and Lord Krishna play ‘Raas Leela’ during the night. And owing to this, no one is allowed to visit the place at that time. Also, the holy place is restricted for filming. However, the YouTuber didn’t abide by the rules and shot the video on November 6, along with his cousin Prashant and friends Mohit and Abhishek.
Gaurav Sharma is the same YouTuber who was arrested earlier this year for making his dog ‘float’ by tying it to a balloon, filming the act and posting it on YouTube.
