Actor Poonam Pandey and her husband were arrested on Thursday in a “case related to circulation of an obscene video”, Goa police said in a statement.
On November 2, Pandey’s nude video at Chapoli Dam Canacona, considered to be public premises, went viral. A complaint was filed by the water resources department after Opposition parties raised the issue on social media.
Initially, a case was registered against an unknown person, but eventually the couple was arrested and later released on conditional bail.
“During the investigation the alleged video clip was seized and relevant sections of IT Act, sections related to trespass and the Indecent Representation of Women Act were added to the case,” said Pankaj Singh, SP, South Goa.
The couple have been asked to remain in Goa till the investigation is complete. “The investigation has revealed that the couple had sneaked into the dam during the early hours on October 31 where they shot the objectionable clip,” the SP said in a statement.
