LUCKNOW, India (AP) - Indian police say they have filed a case against Miss Universe, American Olivia Culpo, for an unauthorized footwear fashion shoot at the Taj Mahal, India's white-marble monument to love.

Police Inspector Sushant Gaur said Thursday that Culpo, Indian-born fashion designer Sanjana Jon and others in her group are accused of violating India's Heritage Act. Culpo was on a 10-day visit to India.

He said they shot a commercial at the Taj Mahal on Sunday without the permission of the state-run Archaeological Survey of India.

Gaur said they can be jailed for up to two years and fined 100,000 rupees ($1,600) if found guilty.

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.
