Mumbai: Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor landed in a fresh controversy after posting a nude photo of a child on his Twitter account, following which an NGO filed a written complaint with the Mumbai Cyber Police.
Initially, the reports suggested the NGO had filed an FIR but cops have now clarified that there was no case registered by them.
The actor removed the post within a day of posting it. While sharing his thoughts in a sarcastic way on a social issue, he posted a nude boy’s photo along with a message. However the method of spreading the message did not go down well with a local Mumbai based NGO who works for underprivileged children.
An NGO, Jai Ho Foundation, filed the complaint against Rishi Kapoor at Mumbai’s Cyber Police station of Bandra Kurla Complex. In a statement, Afroz Malik, President of Jai Ho Foundation NGO 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.
On Saturday, Rishi Kapoor posted a video on Twitter in which a little boy is seen hitting a girl playfully and the boy standing next to him is thought to be responsible.
