The Navghar police have arrested a 28-year-old man for allegedly uploading his wife's nude videos on a porn website. The 25-year-old woman learnt about this incident when her brother informed her about the video as it was being circulated on a social messenger and complained to the police.
The accused Ashish Dasgupta,28, a resident of Navghar, married the woman in 2012, and later shifted to Vasai. Dasgupta shot some intimate moments of his wife and kept them safely. Later, the couple began to fight frequently and the differences between them grew. The woman filed for a divorce in 2013.
Earlier this month, the brother of the victim learnt about the video as it was being circulated.
The police have arrested Dasgupta under section 354 (a) (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation).
"We have also booked him under sections 66 (A) (sending offensive messages through communication service) and 67 (A)(punishment for publishing or transmitting material) of the Information Technology Act," said a Navghar police official.
"We got to know that Dasgupta wanted to take revenge from wife and so he uploaded the video," said Abhay Karundkar, police inspector, Navghar police station.
