“Peepli Live” Maker Mahmood Farooqui Will Not Be Tried For Sex Assault, Says Supreme Court

Supreme Court rejects challenge to “Peepli Live” maker Mahmood Farooqui’s acquittal in sex assault case

New Delhi:  Rejecting a petition challenging the acquittal of ‘Peepli Live’ director Mahmood Farooqui, the Supreme Court today upheld the verdict of the Delhi High Court. “It is not a case where strangers met. It is a relationship and they were known to each other,” the top court said.

Mr Farooqui was booked in 2015 on the complaint filed by a research scholar from a US-based university. The petitioner alleged that the filmmaker had raped her at his Delhi residence. Farooqui was convicted of rape by a trial court in 2016 but last year the Delhi High Court acquitted him.

“It’s a hard case but well decided by the High Court,” the top court said, dismissing the plea filed against the filmmaker.
