A sessions court on Tuesday refused interim protection to actor Gehana Vasisth in an adult films case filed by the property cell of the Mumbai police last week. Hearing her anticipatory bail application, the court said there was more than one FIR against Vasisth, adding that the allegations that she had compelled women to enact obscene acts for adult films were serious in nature. The court said Vasisth’s case was not a fit one to grant interim relief. The case will now be heard on August 6. Vasisth was arrested in a similar case in February and granted bail in June.

Kundra’s offence detrimental to health of society: Court

Meanwhile, in the detailed order rejecting bail to businessman Raj Kundra arrested in the adult films case, the metropolitan magistrate’s court has said that the alleged offence is “detrimental to the health of our society”. “In such circumstances, societal interest in the prosecution of a crime which has a wider social dimension cannot be overlooked,” the court said, adding that investigation is in progress and releasing him would hamper the probe.

The court also said that the arrest was not illegal as claimed by Kundra stating that the investigating officer had mentioned the reasons for his arrest as required by law. Kundra’s plea seeking release on similar grounds was reserved for orders by the Bombay High Court on Monday.
