This comes after an FIR was registered against the actor under various Indian Penal Code Sections like 292 (sale of obscene books, etc), 293 (sale of obscene objects to young people), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and provisions of the Information Technology Act.
Besides a Mumbai-based Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) an application was also filed by a lawyer, demanding a case against Ranveer on the charge of intent to outrage the modesty of women.
“We received applications from a person associated with an NGO and a woman lawyer on Monday in this matter,” a police officer confirmed to PTI in July. At the time, the cops were still conducting preliminary enquiries into the matter.
