The two girls who were arrested for a Facebook post questioning the shut of Mumbai city following Shiv Sena leader Bal Thackeray's funeral on Sunday have said that they regret their action. But they say that what they did was not a crime.
'We are scared, won't write on Facebook again,' said 21 year old Shaheen Dhada, who had posted the comment in question in an interview to NDTV.
"I would like to apologise. He (Bal Thackeray) was a great man," said Shaheen. Her friend who liked the post has also apologised. But the girls say that their arrest was unfair.
The girls were arrested after a local Shiv Sena leader complained to the police. Shaheen's uncle's clinic was ransacked as well. 9 men have now been arrested in connection with the incident.
