Crime Investigation Department (CID) sleuths are investigating actress Shruti Hassan’s complaint about her still photographs taken during the shoot of Tollywood movie ‘Yevadu’ being posted on several movie websites without her permission.
Shruti Hassan had recently lodged an online complaint with CID sleuths. In her complain, Shruti claimed that at the time of shooting of ‘Yevadu’ movie, the producer had promised not to release still photographs taken during the shoot to the media, but in the past few days she noticed that the same photos were uploaded on various movie websites. Shruti urged the CID sleuths to take necessary action against the people misusing her photographs without her permission.
Based on the complaint, the cyber crime sleuths of the CID began questioning administrators of the websites which have uploaded the photos and they were also grilling photographers who reportedly supplied the photos to the websites.
However, police were not really sure whether uploading of photographs taken in a public place could be termed as illegal and they were seeking legal opinion on how to go about the investigation.
