The Mumbai Police, which had booked actor Ranveer Singh on charges of obscenity for allegedly posting photographs from his nude photoshoot for Paper magazine on his Instagram account, has begun “technical investigation” into the matter – Jyothi Venkatesh

The NGO which has complained against Ranveer Singh states, “We always support that there should be freedom of speech and expression but that doesn’t mean that you should roam nude in the society.

The actors in India are called Nayak and the people of India follow them, in some parts of India and people even worship them as God. By doing such acts the actors like Ranveer Singh try to get cheap publicity at the cost of the sentiments of the people.”

The cyber police has also been roped in by the local Chembur police to get details like the device from which the photos were uploaded, the accounts that were involved in sharing it and the location where the photoshoot took place, according to the news portal indianexpress.com.

The police said that while it is known that the actor himself uploaded the photos on July 21, they want to gather technical evidence regarding the same. “Initially, we are focussing on getting the IP address of the device using which the photos were uploaded… for which we are taking help from the cyber police,” said an officer.

“Currently, we are focused on the technical aspects of the probe. Once that is done, we may summon him to record his statement,” the officer added.

The actor was booked under sections 292 (sale of obscene books), 293 (sale of obscene objects to young persons) and 509 (act intending to outrage modesty of women) of the Indian Penal Code, along with Section 67A of the IT Act, which deals with publication of any material that contains sexually explicit act or conduct.
