Activist seeks police action against Mallika

January 04, 2007 21:45 IST

A social worker has written to the police to take action against Mallika Sherawat for obscenity during her performance on New Year's eve at a hotel in Mumbai.

Activist Vinod Jain said he had approached the police after watching Sherawat's performance on certain television channels.

Additional Commissioner of Police Bipin Bihari said, "There has been no formal complaint filed with the police yet. We received an application from Jain today. We will study the footage of the event and if the performance attracts the concerned sections of law, the complaint will be filed."

Jain said, "The actress was wearing obscene clothes and dancing in a manner that was very offensive to our culture and women."

He approached the Santa Cruz police station to take up the matter since the hotel lies within its jurisdiction.

Jain has sought the filing of a complaint against Sherawat and the organisers of the function under the IPC and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
