Pornography case: Gehana Vasisht’s pre-arrest bail plea rejected by Bombay HC


Mumbai: The Bombay High Court today rejected the pre-arrest bail plea filed by actress Gehana Vasisht accused in a case related to pornographic films.

Gehna Vashisht is accused of threatening women for acting in porn films and luring them in the name of money. Hearing the petition, a bench of High Court Judge refused to grant him bail. To avoid arrest in this case, Gehana Vashistha had filed an application in the High Court last month. A case has been registered against Gehna under section 354-C for breach of privacy of women.

Apart from this, a case has also been filed against her under Sections 292 and 293 of IPC for selling objectionable material. She has also been made an accused under sections 66E, 67, 67A of the IT Act.

Mumbai Police had recently registered three cases against different people for running a porn film making racket. One of the accused is also Raj Kundra, husband of famous actress Shilpa Shetty. Businessman Raj Kundra was arrested by the police on July 19. Presently he is in judicial custody.

In one such FIR, there is an allegation against Gehana Vashisht of getting work in porn films on the pretext of getting work for small acting scenes. The police also applied in the lower court to register a case against Gehana Vashisht under section 370.
