Miss Universe faces police case over Taj Mahal photoshoot
AGRA, India (AFP) - Indian police said on Thursday they had filed a case against Miss Universe for conducting an unauthorised footwear fashion shoot at the Taj Mahal which was slammed as an "insult" by the monument's caretaker.
Twenty-one-year-old American Olivia Culpo, wearing a long peach-coloured dress, visited the world-famous "monument to love" in Agra on Sunday during a 10-day tour of India.
"We have registered a case against Ms Culpo and her team members after receiving a complaint," Sushant Gaur said from the tourism police station in Agra, 180km south of New Delhi.
"We have booked her under various sections... of India's Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act," he added.
