Panaji: Goa police on Thursday detained actress Poonam Pandey for trespassing into government property and shooting obscene video in Canacona town.

Pandey who had checked in a five star hotel at Sinquerim in North Goa was detained by team of Calangute Police on Thursday afternoon and later handed over to Canacona police.

Superintendent of Police (South) Pankaj Kumar Singh said that the actress was “detained for questioning”. He said that after questioning, it would be decided whether she needs to be arrested or not.

An objectionable video clip of Pandey shot at Chapoli dam, a property of State Water Resources Department, had gone viral after which the locals from Canacona had resorted to shut down of the town on Thursday. The locals were demanding immediate suspension of policemen, who allegedly provided security to the crew members and Pandey during the shoot.

State WRD  had filed a formal complaint with Canacona police against unknown accused. Police had booked Pandey on Wednesday after identifying her in the video.

Meanwhile, Police Inspector Tukaram Chavan attached to Canacona Police station and a constable were suspended pending inquiry by State Home Department on Thursday.

The Canacona residents had called for shut down of the town demanding action against the police officials on Thursday. Former State minister and BJP leader Ramesh Tawadkar said that the police had provided protection to the shoot.

He said that the shut down was called off after chief minister Dr Pramod Sawant assured that the policemen would be suspended. “Later, the wireless was sent ordering suspension of PI Tukaram Chavan and a constable,” he said.

  1. Social Workers are the Real Heroes! There must be a Campaign to inform the people that the real heroes are the Social Workers and not the Actors. We are depend on the Social Workers whereas Actors are depend on us. Pictures of Social Workers must stick in homes wall and other public places instead of pictures of Actors. Posters of Social Workers must sell in book stalls instead of Actors. Social Workers must be invited to attend any Cultural Functions. Social Workers must be invited for inauguration of any Shops, Restaurants, etc. Social Workers are the Real Heroes!
