While he deleted the tweet on being being tagged with Mumbai Police as well as Mehr by another user Rohan Kadam, Mehr was quick on adding that though the tweet was deleted, the screenshot still remained. She shared the screenshot of the tweet with Mumbai Police too.

This tweet created an uproar on twitter including comments from many people from India as well as Pakistan condemning the tweet. The Mumbai police responded to the Pak columnists ordeal claiming that they had forwarded the message to the concerned authority.

In response to the Mumbai police’s response Meher, who was once in news for her links with Shashi Tharoor, thanked the cops for their timely response.
