HC Declines To Quash FIR Against Ekta Kapoor Over Bold Web Series
The Madhya Pradesh High Court has dismissed a petition of producer Ekta Kapoor seeking the case against her to be quashed.
The Indore Bench released its 65-page verdict in which it mentioned that the provision of the IPC section dealing with hurting religious feelings was not found to have been breached by the defendant.
A single bench of Justice Shailendra Shukla observed, “After due consideration in view of the aforesaid discussions, it appears that facts of the case are not such that this court may exercise its extraordinary powers under Section 482 of CrPC for quashing the FIR at least in respect of Section 67, 67-A of IT Act and Section 294 of IPC.”
Judge Shukla said in a reprieve to the producer on two charges, “Although, it would be fair enough to state that provision of Section 298 of the IPC and the provision of the State Emblem Act are not found to have been breached.”
A case has been filed against the TV producer for allegedly producing bold content in the web series “XXX season 2”. An FIR was registered against her five months ago after a complaint alleging that the series aired on ALTBalaji spreads vulgarity and hurts religious feelings.
Kapoor was charged under IPC sections 294 (obscenity), 298 (hurting religious feelings).
