An officer said the police were likely to take custody of Vasisth and Khan in three other FIRs registered in connection with the case. Two FIRs have been registered at Malwani and one at Lonavla police station. These cases were registered after some women, who had been promised roles in web series were allegedly made to act in porn movies under duress, approached the police after the accused were arrested.
