Porn film case: Supreme Court stays arrest of actor Gehana Vasisth

-

New Delhi Sept 22(ILNS): The Supreme Court today stayed the Bombay High Court order against Bollywood actor Gehana Vasisth in a porn film case and said that Gehana would not be arrested in the third FIR registered in the case.

The Bench comprised of Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice BR Gavai asked Gehana to join the probe if the investigating agency needs it.

Advocate Ajit Wagh for Gehna Vasisth argued that the prosecution had said they need custody because a pornography racket had to be unearthed.

Vasisth’s lawyer contended that the prosecution had stated that they needed detention because a pornography racket has been discovered.

Three FIRs have been filed against Gehana Vasisth for making pornographic content and uploading them on certain OTT platforms. She has secured bail in the two FIRs that were lodged against her. The third FIR was filed by the Mumbai Police Crime Branch earlier in July.

Gehna Vasisth had moved for anticipatory bail in the FIR filed under Sections 354C, 292, and 293 of the Indian Penal Code; Sections 66E, 67, 67A of the Information Technology Act; and provisions of the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.

On September 7, the Bombay High Court had rejected the anticipatory bail application of Gehna Vasisth against which Gehna had filed a petition in the Supreme Court.

Gehana had filed a petition in the lower court to avoid her arrest which was rejected by the lower court. The lower court’s decision was challenged in the Bombay High Court, which was also overruled by the High Court.

Raj Kundra, a businessman, is also named in another FIR filed in connection with the pornographic video case. Kundra was granted bail earlier this week by the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate in Mumbai’s Esplanade./ILNS/SS/SNG
