Actor Gehna Vashisth who was arrested in a porn racket case reached the High Court after the Sessions Court refused to grant anticipatory bail in the FIR lodged under Sections 354C (outraging modesty of a woman), 292, 293 (sale of obscene material) under the Indian Penal Code, Sections 66E, 67, 67A (transmission of sexually explicit material) under the Information Technology Act and provisions of the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
According to reports, Vashisth is accused of involving women in porn films without their consent. Her lawyer Advocate Abhishek Yende said in a statement released on Tuesday that “In the present case, the web series was shot over two months. Hence, the complainant was very well aware of what was being shot. She acted throughout and accepted the payment towards the contract and also promoted the series”. He further said “Whatever could have been recovered from Vasisth had already been recovered when she was in custody. Also, a second FIR was registered and the police interrogated her”.
Vasisth is looking for a pre-arrest bail within the third FIR enlisted against her as of late. Vasisth expressed in her application that the Mumbai Police looked to arrest her in a third FIR when she had as of now been in custody for four months within the past two FIRs.
