Stand-up comedian Rohan Joshi has decided to deactivate his Twitter account after his number and address was leaked. Taking to Instagram, Rohan said that he has been getting threats and abuses ever since the incident.

"Going offline for a few days. Number and address have been leaked, so the last few days have been a circus of abuse, threat, 2 am phone calls and anxious spirals. I'm sorry if I offended anyone's sentiments with my words and I apologise without any qualifications and reservations for any words I have spoken that have hurt someone's religious sentiments. Please leave my family alone", Rohan wrote.

A few days back, another comedian Agrima Joshua came under fire for allegedly insulting Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. She, too, posted an apology after being violently abused on Twitter. A YouTuber, Shubham Mishra, who had threatened to rape her, has been arrested.
