FIR files against Rishi Kapoor for tweeting nude photo of a minor

Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor is in legal hassle. FIR has been lodged against the actor for sharing a nude picture of a minor along with a message.  Advocate Adil Khatri approached police as he feels the photo is vulgar and indecent. The picture tweeted by Rishi Kapoor shows a boy aging below 10 years, naked from back. The actor later deleted the image.

The FIR was filed by advocate Adil Khatri, who is also the general secretary of Jai Ho Foundation. He has lodged a police complaint against Rishi for posting an offensive picture of a child on his Twitter handle. Talking about the same, Adil Khatri said, “We have filed a complaint with Mumbai Police Commissioner, Mumbai Cyber Cell and Ministry of Woman and Child Development against actor Rishi Kapoor for posting nude and pornographic image of a child on his Twitter account @chintskap. We don’t know who the child in the picture is, but it is offensive as the child is naked and a headphone has been stuck into his private parts."

Afroz Malik, the President of Jai Ho Foundation has asked to file an FIR against Rishi Kapoor. Police has clarified that no FIR has been lodged against him. 

The contacted police officer confirmed that a complaint has lodged against the actor but there was no FIR. 

Afroz Malik said, “We would request you to immediately register an FIR against actor Rishi Kapoor under relevant sections of POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) and IT Act for posting indecent, nude and vulgar picture of a minor child on his Twitter account @chintskap."

When it comes to social media, Rishi Kapoor never minced his words and he often lands in trouble for his tweets. In an interview a couple of days ago, Rishi Kapoor said, “What I write on my twitter account is for me, and not you. I write what comes directly from my heart. Don't take my tweets seriously."
