Ram Gopal Varma booked by Telangana police for caste based 'Murder'
Telangana Police on Saturday booked controversial filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma following court orders.

Filmmaker and Director Ram Gopal Varma has been booked for his sensational caste based film named 'Murder' based on an alleged incident of honour killing.

Varma and the producer were booked under Indian Penal Code (IPC) section 153A (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language, etc and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony) and other sections of SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Amendment Act.

This took place when a petition was filed by the father of the man who was killed in an incident of alleged honour killing in September 2018.

Pranay, a 24-year-old Dalit, was hacked to death by hired killer in full public view when he along with his wife and mother were coming out of a private hospital in Miryalaguda on September 14, 2018. The sensational murder was caught on CCTV camera.

Balaswamy, who had approached the court last month, sought a ban on the film. He also said that photos of Pranay and his daughter-in-law Amrutha were being used without their consent.

According to his opinion, it is incorrect to make a film while the case is still pending in the court. He also thinks that the release of the film might also affect the opinion of the hearing and hence should be stalled at the earliest.
