November 5, 2020: Actress Poonam Pandey was on Thursday detained by South Goa police for shooting an obscene video at the Chapoli dam in Canacona, Goa.



On November 3, the women's wing of the Goa Forward Party had filed a complaint with Pankaj Kumar Singh, superintendent of police (SP), Margao, South Goa, against Pandey.



According to police, she was detained for questioning, following a complaint and a copy of the obscene video shot in a public place.



Earlier, an inspector was suspended following outrage over Pandey's controversial photoshoot at a restricted dam site in South Goa. After the ruling and opposition party members staged a protest demanding action against police officials permitting the shoot, Tukaram Chavan, police inspector in-charge of the Canacona police station was suspended.



The South Goa police has already filed a First Information Report, first against unknown persons and then against Pandey under section 294 (obscenity) of the Indian Penal Code, after the Goa Police had received nearly half a dozen written complaints regarding the controversial photoshoot.
