MUMBAI: A sessions court on Wednesday rejected the anticipatory bail plea of model and actor Sherlyn Chopra in an obscenity case being probed by the crime branch. The agency, which is probing Raj Kundra for production of porn films, had summoned Chopra to record her statement in the case.
Chopra, however, did not join the probe and instead moved the court seeking anticipatory bail. The plea submitted and argued by advocate Siddhesh Borkar said that she apprehended arrest in the case.
In March, Chopra had lodged a complaint over her obscene videos being published online. “The principles of natural justice would entail the applicant to be given a fair and impartial opportunity to appear before the investigation officer without causing prejudice to her and be informed about the case against her or otherwise so as to enable her to cooperate and assist in the probe process without fear of arrest,” the bail plea said.
