Mumbai: Bollywood actor Abhay Deol has slammed the Mumbai police for raids at a hotel here. Police rounded up some couples from hotel rooms in Madh Island. The raids have evoked criticism from many sections, which have called the incident a case of ‘moral policing’.
The 39-year-old “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” star took to his Facebook page to express his anger at the police, calling the arrests an act of “indecency.”
Abhay also said he finds people’s obsession with sex disturbing. “I was brought up by the same values as any other from my country, which may come as a surprise to those who think people born into the film industry are brought up with a different set of values (usually loose and privileged). So I get it. The taboo that comes with the topic of sex in my society.
“But booking young kids for a crime they didn’t commit, physically and mentally abusing them publicly? To me it looks more like it was the police that was guilty of ‘public indecency’,” he wrote.
