Comedy group All India Bakchod has deleted the controversial post on Prime Minister Narendra Modi after facing condemnation on social media.
Supporters of PM Modi had reported the matter to Mumbai Police, which had assured the complainant of action by its cyber wing.
While posting a photo of PM Modi’s lookalike, the AIB tweet had said, “Dog filter is lyf.’ The group had also added a Snapchat dog filter on Modi’s image while captioning his photo as #wanderlust.
One Twitter user instantly alerted the Mumbai Police which responded by saying, “Thank you for bringing this to our notice.We are forwarding this to the cyber police station.”

Tanmay Bhat, one of the most prominent faces of the AIB, then posted the screenshot of one of PM Modi’s old tweets saying that ‘We surely need more humour in public life.’
In another tweet, he wrote, “PS: Will continue making jokes. And deleting if necessary. And making jokes again. And Apologizing if necessary. Don’t care what you think.”
