After so much controversy and bans when ‘Udta Punjab’ finally won the case and got a green signal with a fair number of cuts, it got leaked. I know! Cheap tactics of people!
Because it was the censor copy that got leaked, people were blaming the censor board for the crime. But, the good news is that the police has finally traced the person behind this cheap act. Deepak Kumar, allzmovie.in, a torrent site’s owner, got arrested on 22nd June, 2016.
After doing some search in Delhi, the police came to know that the first torrent of ‘Udta Punjab’ appeared on Deepak’s site and he has been taken into custody.
Police in their statement said,
The complainant was informed that the said movie was leaked on internet on two separate links of website of Torrentz.com. On downloading the movie it was revealed that the first sensor copy was stolen and uploaded on Torrentz.com by user robby007.
They also added,
During the investigation, it was revealed that website allmovie.in had uploaded the said link on its website. A team visited Delhi and adjoining areas and after diligent efforts Deepak Kumar was traced. He was summoned to the cyber police station, Mumbai, and after thorough investigation, his active role was revealed. He has been arrested.
The Censor Board’s head, Pahlaj Nihlani, rubbished all the allegations that were put on him and said,
The person responsible has already been identified and the leak will be tracked down. We will cooperate if we are approached as part of the investigation
Let’s see what all hidden truth comes out with the arrest of Deepak. The movie makers struggled a lot to remove the copy from all the sites. They definitely would have been waiting for this day!
