MUMBAI POLICE BUSTS MAJOR PORN PRODUCTION RACKET

Mumbai Police’s crime branch has exposed a major racket wherein a porn film production company makes pornographic videos of young women under the pretext of giving them a break in the film industry. The videos are then uploaded on porn sites and mobile apps.

The property cell officials of the crime branch have arrested five people- three men and two women. Two of the arrested men worked as actors, while another man worked as a light man. The two arrested women worked as photographers/videographers and graphic designers.

Reportedly, several such production companies in the city prey on young women who come to Mumbai, hoping to make it big in the TV industry or Bollywood. The companies ask these women to compromise and make porn videos featuring them, and in turn, they are promised a break in a big-budget Bollywood movie.

Bungalows are rented all over Mumbai for filming these pornographic videos, which are then uploaded on porn sites and mobile apps. Such videos account for lakhs of rupees in revenue for the companies.

The accused also released trailers of such porn videos on social media sites, including Instagram, Twitter, Telegram, and WhatsApp.

As per reports, property cell officials of Mumbai Police received a tip-off about shooting porn videos at a rented bungalow in Madh Village of Malad West. API Laxmikant Salunkhe raided the place while the shooting of a porn video was going on.

A preliminary enquiry has revealed that the accused owned mobile application ‘Hothit Movies’ wherein such porn videos are uploaded. Subscribers have to download the app and pay to view the videos on their devices. In addition, the company owns a few more such mobile applications.
