According to a report in the Hindustan Times, complainant, Anjali Vinod Palan, 30, told the police she had heard a lot about the actress.
She therefore searched for Leone’s pictures on a social networking site, the report stated.
The page had a link to a website bearing the actress’ name, Palan said. When she clicked on the link, she allegedly found Leone’s obscene pictures and videos on the website, according to Palan’s complaint.
Palan, along with two of her colleagues, approached the Dombivli police station on Thursday evening.
“We have registered a case against Leone and the unidentified person who took the photographs and uploaded them on the website. We are investigating the case further,” said SB Shivarkar, senior inspector, Dombivli police station, who was quoted in the Hindustan Times‘ report.
“We will block the website at the earliest,” said JK Sawant, senior inspector, Thane cyber cell.
Cyber law expert Prashant Mali was quoted by the report as saying, “Indecent representation of women is a non-bailable offence, with a maximum imprisonment for five years. The actress could face arrest.”
