The police have booked actor Sunny Leone for obscenity after a right wing outfit filed complaint raising objection over some of her pictures shared on the Internet.

Terming the Indo-Canadian actor’s website as one inducing lust in young minds, the complainant Hindu Janjagruti Samiti (HJS) has demanded her deportation.

The complaint was submitted on Thursday at Dombivali police station by Anjali Palan, a member of HJS who claimed that while surfing the Internet, she came across several posts and pictures of the actor which according to her were “objectionable.”

According to a police release on Friday, the offence was registered on Thursday night against the 34-year-old actor under the IPC sections 292, 292 A, 294 r/w 34 and provisions of Section 3 and 4 of Indian Representation of Women as well as Information Technology Act have also been slapped. HJS brought up Ms. Leone’s past where she worked in pornographic films and alleged that she was spreading pornography through her “nude photographs and videos” on her website. The cyber cell of the Thane Police is probing the matter.
