I&B ministry wants sleuths to crack down on porn

Mumbai: The information & broadcasting (I&B) ministry wants to hire private detectives to crackdown on cinema owners screening films interspersed with pornographic clips. Censor board sources said the ministry estimates to spend Rs 50 lakh per year on the detectives who will raid cinema halls that screen films with porn scenes inserted.
Former central board of film certification regional officer Vinayak Azad said, “A provision to hire private detectives was there in the 10th Five-Year Plan but it was then discontinued. Cases did come to us but most were from B and C category towns and they often came from cine-goers who filed complaints.”
