A Finnish man and his Indian girlfriend were arrested in India after neighbours complained that they were playing pornographic movies with the volume turned up too loudly, a police officer said on Wednesday.
Exhibiting pornography and possessing pornographic materials are illegal in India. If convicted, the two could face three months in prison and a fine.
The two were arrested on Monday night at the Finnish man's home in the town of Gurgaon, a centre of India's information technology and outsourcing business, the officer said on condition of anonymity.
Apart from arresting the couple, officers also seized a television and CD player, he said.
The couple, who were not identified, were granted bail Tuesday.No date has been set for the hearing, said the police officer.
