Pornographic film accidentally aired at a bus station in Kerala
Hundreds of passengers in bus station in Kalpetta in Kerala’s Wayanad district were left shell-shocked and deeply embarrassed when a television set installed to broadcast advertisements suddenly started showing a pornographic video.
Commuters were in for a rude shock after being subjected to the objectionable content.
The information was brought to public after a Reddit user ‘dark0range’, who witnessed the event, posted about it on Reddit/India.
According to dark0range, the video played out for a full 30 minutes at the state-run bus depot on Tuesday before it could be switched off as no one could find the power source and the operator’s room was locked.
“Some even tried to put a cloth on the TV, but the sound couldn’t be stopped. Mothers with their children, college girls and some others ran away,” dark0range said on Reddit.
The drama came to an end when someone found an iron rod and struck down the power cable.
The cable operator identified as Manzoor was nabbed and was apparently the culprit behind the fiasco, according to police sources. Cops say he claims to have played the clip by mistake as he loaded the wrong video clip along with the ads. Manzoor had confessed he had plugged in the wrong pen drive which contained pornographic material.
Manzoor was produced in court on Wednesday. He has been booked under section 292 of the Indian Penal Code (obscene and indecent advertisement and display), the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act, and various sections of the Information Technology Act.
