Ram Gopal Varma appeared before the Hyderabad police on Saturday following a case of obscenity booked against him for his movie God, Sex and Truth, and also for his derogatory remarks on a woman activist. On January 25, a day before the release of the movie, Varma was booked by the CCS after activist Devi filed a complaint. A case under section 67 of the Information Technology Act, 2000 was booked against him for publishing or transmitting obscene material in electronic form.
The filmmaker was also booked under sections 506 and 509 of Indian Penal Code for making personal comments against a women activist P Mani. The filmmaker, whose controversial movie with American adult movie star Mia Malkova was released on internet last month, appeared before the officials of Central Crime Station (CCS) in response to the notice served on him.
A five-member team questioned Varma about the allegations made against him by women activists. After questioning, he was again asked to appear before the police. Women's organisations in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh had staged protests last month demanding a ban on the release of the movie on internet and Varma's immediate arrest.
