The Begusarai court in the Indian state of Bihar has issued arrest warrants for ‘XXX’ Season 2 producer Ekta Kapoor and her mother Shobha Kapoor for allegedly insulting soldiers and hurting the sensibilities of their families.
After Ekta and Shobha Kapoor failed to appear for their court summons, the court issued a warrant for their arrest. Shambhu Kumar, a veteran and local of Begusarai, lodged a formal complaint that formed the basis for this investigation.
“On the basis of a complaint filed by Begusarai resident and ex-serviceman Shambhu Kumar, the court issued them summonses and ordered them to appear in court. They were supposed to appear in court, but they didn’t, therefore a warrant was issued for their arrest “Attorney Hrishikesh Pathak put it this way.
Also, earlier complaints were filed elsewhere against Ekta Kapoor in connection with the online series. In Indore, police filed a complaint against ‘XXX Season 2‘ producer Ekta Kapoor and others for allegedly offending religious sensibilities, insulting Army men, and misusing the national insignia.
Annapurna police say that the FIR was filed in 2020 under many provisions of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and the Information Technology Act. The complainant, Neeraj Yagnik, stated that he filed the complaint because of the web series’ offensive portrayal of the national insignia and Army uniform.
A similar suit was filed in a Muzaffarpur court in Bihar against producers Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor for their role in creating the web series ‘XXX’ for Alt Balaji, which allegedly insulted military soldiers and their families.
