Clothes are always a temptation for women. We often hear stories of women getting in trouble with the police because they stole clothes or shoes. This time Olivia Culpo is facing police charges related to fashion and shoes but she didn’t attempt to steal anything, she was just posing for a photo-shooting. The problem was that she did it in an archaeological place in India without the permissions.
Indian police have filed a case against Miss Universe, American Olivia Culpo, for an unauthorized fashion shoot at the Taj Mahal, India’s white-marble monument to love, a police officer said Thursday.
The brand didn’t have permission
Police Inspector Sushant Gaur said Culpo and others in her group are accused of violating India’s Heritage Act. Culpo, from Cranston, Rhode Island, was on a 10-day visit to India.
He said they shot a commercial for footwear at the Taj Mahal on Sunday without the permission of the state-run Archaeological Survey of India. Police acted on a complaint received from the ASI on Thursday, Gaur said.
Jail… For how long
If found guilty, they can be jailed for up to two years and fined $1,600, Guar said.
Indian police file a case as a first step in investigating a complaint. They formally charge a suspect in court at the end of the investigation.
Indian media said commercial activity is banned on the premises of the Taj Mahal, a World Heritage Site.
Culpo posed for photographs wearing one sandal, holding another in her hand and keeping another pair on the bench she was sitting on, Guar said.
