A couple of days back we had reported that the makers of the recently released Shahid Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh starrer Udta Punjab had filed a case against anonymous people who had leaked a censor copy of the film online days before its theatrical release. Well now we hear that the Mumbai Police have made their first arrest in the case in Delhi.
This arrest comes after the makers of Udta Punjab, Balaji Motion Pictures and Phantom Films’ legal team had lodged a complaint with the cyber police. Following this, the Cybercrime police had blocked over 150 websites that reportedly had the links of the pirated copies. Though fingers were pointed at the Central Board of Film Certification for having apparently leaked the censor copy of the film, it is learnt that the arrested individual has no connection to the CBFC.
While more details of the arrest are unavailable, an official statement on the same is awaited.
