Ranveer Singh recorded his statement with the Mumbai Police on Monday in the nude photoshoot case. He was summoned in a case registered against him for posting clothless photographs of himself on social media. A First Information Report (FIR) was registered against Singh at Chembur police station here last month on the basis of a complaint filed by an office-bearer of a non-governmental organisation (NGO).
The police subsequently served him a notice to join the probe into the case. The actor appeared before the investigating officer around 7 am on Monday and his statement was recorded, the official said. Singh left the police station around 9.30 am, the official said adding that the actor will be called again, if required.
The complainant had claimed the actor “hurt the sentiments of women in general and insulted their modesty through his photographs.”
Based on the complaint, the police had registered the FIR against Singh under various Indian Penal Code Sections like 292 (sale of obscene books, etc), 293 (sale of obscene objects to young people), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult modesty of a woman) and provisions of the Information Technology Act, an official earlier said.
