    Shiv Sena demands Richard Gere's arrest

    New Delhi, April. 16 (PTI): Shiv Sena today held a protest demonstration here demanding arrest of Hollywood actor Richard Gere for "hurting" the sentiments of Indians by publicly kissing Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty.

    Delhi Shiv Sena chief Jai Bhagwan Goyal said that Gere should be arrested immediately for his kissing act with Shetty at a function on AIDS awareness here yesterday, which has led to widespread protests from several quarters.

    Giving a memorandum to Delhi's Police Commissioner in this regard, Goyal also demanded police action against Gere, Shetty and the organisers of the function.

    "It is an attack on our cultural ethos. Our culture does not permit public display of such acts," he said.

    Gere had repeatedly kissed Shetty on stage at the function last night where Bollywood actor Sunny Deol and more than 4,000 truck drivers also participated in the campaign to create AIDS awareness.
