Actress Swara Bhasker took to Twitter on Wednesday to report to Mumbai Police a man who harassed her calling her a “call girl” for supporting the young politician Kanhaiya Kumar.

Reporting the harasser who calls himself “a mad mad nationalist” and is “proud to be born a Hindu”, Swara tweeted a screenshot of his expletive-laden comment. She wrote, “In his own words ‘mad, proud and fortunate nationalist & Hindu’ bringing shame upon his (and my) religion and nation! Also I think this qualifies as harassment or eve teasing or something @MumbaiPolice .”

The actor immediately got a response from the Mumbai Police’s official Twitter handle within minutes. Taking note of her concern, it said, “We have followed you. Request you to inbox your number. We will look into this on priority.”

Impressed by the response of Mumbai Police, even hours after midnight, Swara replied, “wow! Thank you for the prompt reply and kudos to @MumbaiPolice social media handle for being available 24/7 ! #Gratitude.”
