A city court has asked the police to file a report of the photograph within two weeks following a complaint by CM Dua, who runs an NGO, seeking registration of a criminal case against him for the obscene picture. He alleged that he was shocked to find the daily carrying John's nude photograph on the study desk of his children. He said such acts could corrupt the young minds which is dangerous.
Dua, who had sought registration of an FIR against the actor, publisher and editor of the daily, said that he was forced to approach the court following the passive response of the police. Now, Metropolitan Magistrate Ashish Aggarwal has directed the station house officer of the Moti Nagar police station to submit the report to the court within two weeks, as the complaint alleges commission of cognisable offences under Section 292 and 294 (relating to spread of obscene material) of the Indian Penal Code.
