Sherlyn Chopra request for protection of arrest at Bombay High Court
Sherlyn Chopra pleads protection from arrest in Bombay High court.
Sherlyn Chopra requests for protection from arrest at Bombay High Court after her application for anticipatory bail has been rejected. The actress has been charged under obscenity case. Bombay High Court will have the hearing in February 22.
The actress has been charged for filming adult content for a pornographic website, however Mumbai police says it will not make an arrest until Monday.
In her application, she stated that she shot the content for a subscription based international website and is a victim of piracy herself. It is highly incompetent to expect a self-made woman to produce adult content for a select group of international subscribers and then publish the same content on free porn websites and other portals so as to make it easily and freely available for mass viewing,” her application further stated.
The complaint was filed by a retired Customs and Central Excise Officer, Madhukar keni who alleged that some websites published obscene content on the internet. The complainant further stated that on typing Sherlyn Chopra on Google, several obscene videos came up. He downloaded these videos proof. The cyber cell verified the complaint and then registered an offence against the actress.
While declining Sherlyn’s anticipatory bail, the Mumbai Sessions Judge Court said, “face to face interrogation is required.” The court did state that the videos were not uploaded by Chopra but the court felt that it is her responsibility to register her complaint before the police if her videos are uploaded without her consent. Hence, the court rejected bail and said that it is up to the investigating officer to investigate the allegation and whether there is any agreement in between Sherlyn Chopra and the service operator, who shot the obscene videos and uploaded them on the internet.
