Porn Fans Forced To Do Sit-ups info
Indian police forced around 200 people caught watching
pornography to do sit-ups in public to shame them and keep them
away from theatres that illegally screen adult films.
The Hindustan Times reported yesterday that police stopped the
screening of a pornographic movie at a cinema in the Balasore
district in the eastern state of Orissa and made audience
members, some as young as 17, do 10 sit-ups each at a public
square, watched by onlookers.
The police made the all-male group vow not to watch pornography
To make matters worse for the teenagers who were caught, police
called their parents to watch them doing sit-ups. Surprised
Police officer Sanjeev Panda said authorities carried out the
public shaming after failed attempts to persuade cinemas in the
district not to show pornography
"So we decided to crack down on the audience," Mr Panda was
quoted as saying.
The newspaper also reported that police in Orissa planned to
integrate such public punishments into their general campaign
Exhibiting pornography is illegal in India, but it is screened
in many cinemas.
