Versova Police on Monday nabbed a Bhojpuri film director after an unedited bath scene uploaded by him went viral on social media and was even picked up by three porn sites.
As per a report in The Times of India, the 28-year old victim informed the Police that she has been requesting the 29-year old accused, Upendrakumar Verma to delete the links but he refused to remove the link from the porn site. In an FIR registered by the victim, she has alleged that the accused has also demanded the make-up charged of Rs 15,000 for a short film, shot in June 2017.
As per the report, the victim in her complaint has stated, “The film was shot in three days at Verma’s Mhada office in Andheri (West) last year. While a bath scene was being shot, my towel came undone, which Verma shot. He cleared my payment and, while leaving his office, I requested him to delete that particular scene, which he assured he would. A few days later, I learnt from friends and relatives about the unedited bath scene being uploaded on YouTube. It was later picked up by three porn sites.”
While the accused has been arrested, Deputy commissioner of police (Zone IX) Paramjit Singh Dahiya has not revealed any further details. “The film was shot using Verma’s mobile. We have seized his mobile and laptop. He has been in hiding since the case was registered in January. He used to change his mobile number every month which made it difficult to trace him,” a police official informed the daily.
Meanwhile, Verma is said to be in police custody till April 5.
