Watching sexual content



My name is Virendra am 27 yrs old and live  away from my family , I need some advice from you.

am not employed right now , so to kill the time i buy rental English dvds, like horror and thriller movies and watch it on my PC . Unfortunately all these movies have some s*xual content in it.

Yesterday I was watching a movie and my next door aunty saw it when there was a topless girl getting killed by the serial killer, She thought I was watching s*x videos. I told her that these are English horror movie and said to her that am a major and I can watch these types of movies. Now she and her husband are threatening me that they will report it to  the police and get me arrested for watching s*xual content.

I want to know whether watching adult content in India is against the law of the land.

Can I get arrested for this.Please help , am very afraid because it will affect my  life and career.

Watching p*rn at home no offence: Bombay HC

Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Wednesday held that watching p*rn movies at private residence does not constitute an offence. 

The Court quashed a criminal case filed by Mumbai Police under section 292 (public exhibition of obscene material) of IPC against 28 men and 11 women, including some customs officials.

There was no "public exhibition" as specified in the IPC, Justice V K Tahilramani held. 

Police had filed the case after busting a "rave party" at Taj Cottage in Prichly Hill at Lonavala on August 26, 2008.
