On January 18, the Supreme Court granted protection from arrest to actor Poonam Panday in the porn films racket case.

A bench of Justices Vineet Saran and B V Nagarathna issued notice to the Maharashtra government on an appeal filed by Panday against a Bombay High Court order rejecting her anticipatory bail.

"Issue notice. In the meanwhile, no coercive action shall be taken against the petitioner," the bench said.

Panday has been arrayed as an accused in the FIR along with actor Sherlyn Chopra. The high court had rejected her anticipatory bail application on November 25, 2021.

In December, the apex court had granted protection from arrest to Raj Kundra in connection with an FIR registered against him for allegedly distributing pornographic videos.

Kundra had been booked under certain Sections of the Indian Penal Code, Indecent Representation of Women (Prevention) Act and Information Technology Act, for allegedly distributing/ transmitting sexually explicit videos.

Fearing arrest, Kundra first sought anticipatory bail from the sessions court, but it was refused, He then moved to the high

court, claiming that he had been framed.
