SC grants Sherlyn Chopra protection from arrest in porn film case

Sherlyn Chopra

The Supreme Court on Friday granted protection from arrest to actor and model Sherlyn Chopra in a case related to a porn films racket.

The news: A bench comprising Justices Vineet Saran and Justice Aniruddha Bose issued notice on the plea filed by Chopra challenging the November 25, 2021 order of the Bombay High Court which had declined her plea for anticipatory bail.

What they are saying: “No coercive action shall be taken against the petitioner,” the bench said.

  • Advocate Sunil Fernandes, appearing for Chopra, submitted that protection has already been given to the other accused in the case.
  • “The websites on which the obscene video clips were allegedly found are foreign companies having origins in France and Canada respectively and the Petitioner has no connection/ control/ dominion over them. It is pertinent to note that any unverified user or person can upload any video on such websites without the knowledge of the person shown or made to appear in the video,” the plea read.
  • The plea said that she has actively assisted in the investigation and has provided all information as requested by the investigating authorities and there is nothing which is required to be recovered from her.
  • “Petitioner has rendered full co-operation during the stage of service of the Notice by the Respondent and is willing to provide un-fettered co-operation to the Investigating Agency, plea added.
  • The top court in its order said no coercive action shall be taken against Chopra.
  • The apex court had granted pre-arrest bail to Kundra and model Poonam Pandey in the same case.
  • In December, the apex court had granted protection from arrest to Raj Kundra in connection with an FIR registered against him for allegedly distributing pornographic videos.
  • Kundra was booked under certain Sections of the Indian Penal Code, Indecent Representation of Women (Prevention) Act and Information Technology Act, for allegedly distributing/ transmitting sexually explicit videos.
