Mumbai: A 27-year-old woman lodged a complaint against her estranged husband who allegedly sent her porn clips in a bid to seduce her. The man was arrested on Saturday.

According to the Nirmal Nagar police, the accused 38-year-old Imtiaz Sher Khan (name changed to protect the victim’s identity) is a garment trader. Sher Khan has four wives and over 12 children. After divorcing his first wife, he married the victim and the couple has two children. The victim knew that he had two more wives but had no objection towards them.

 

For past two years Sher Khan’s wife has been living separately and has filed a domestic violence case against him, which is going on in Bandra court. The wife has alleged he used to assault her. Around four months back Sher Khan sent some porn clips to her on her mobile phone through WhatsApp, thinking it would seduce her. The man had received the porn videos on WhatsApp from some person.

To Sher Khan’s surprise, his estranged wife approached the Nirmal Nagar police as she lives in its jurisdiction. The Nirmal Nagar police took a legal opinion, as the accused in this case was her husband. They got a legal opinion that an FIR is made out, based on which the case was lodged against Sher Khan in December last year.

The FIR was registered under Sections 292 A (Circulation any picture or any printed or written document which is grossly indecent, or in scurrilous or intended for blackmail) of Indian Penal Code and 67 (Punishment for publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form) and 67 A (Punishment for publishing or transmitting of material containing sexually explicit act, etc. in electronic form) of the Information Technology Act.

Sher Khan, a resident of Khar (east), did not try to escape and cooperated with the police investigations. He was placed under arrest and produced before a magistrate’s court, which remanded him to police custody for a day.

The police is recording statements of Sher Khan and will produce him before court again on Monday.
