Obscene acts in private place not offence under IPC sec 294: HC

A division Bench of Justices NH Patil and AM Badar was hearing a petition recently filed by the men seeking quashing of the FIR registered against them by Andheri Police in December last year under IPC section 294 (anyone indulging in an obscene act in any public place or sings or utters any obscene songs or words in any public place causing annoyance to others).
