Pornography case: Actress Gehana Vashishth, 2 others fail to appear before police
Notably, the police recently arrested businessman Raj Kundra, husband of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, in connection with a case, which it said, related to alleged creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some apps.
After Kundra's arrest,Vashishth, who worked in three films produced for Kundra's app, had in a video said erotic content was different from pornography. Gehana Vashishth and two others were recently summoned by the crime branch's property cell, but they failed to reach the police office here on Sunday, the official said.
The Malwani police had filed FIRs on the basis of complaints received from two women, while another one woman had submitted a complaint at the Lonavla police station, around 120 km from Mumbai, he said.
During investigation it came to light that some small-time artistes were lured by giving them break in some web series or short stories, he had said.
These actors were called for auditions and were asked to give 'bold' scenes, which later turned out to be semi nude or nude scenes, which were against the wishes of the actors, the official had said.
During the investigation, it also came to light that there were many porn-related apps which were operating in the cyber world, he said.
Vashishth was later granted bail. At least 11 persons have been arrested so far in the case, according to the police.
