New Delhi: The Supreme Court has stayed the arrest of a man, accused of hacking email of his daughter-in-law and uploading porn videos in her laptop.

A bench of Justices J Chelameswar and Sanjay K Kaul restrained the Rajasthan police from arresting the accused, and sought a reply why his custodial interrogation was required.

The Court, however, directed Jayesh to assist in the investigation being carried out under the provisions of the Information Technology Act and Indian Penal Code.

"Issue notice. There shall be stay of arrest of the petitioner, in the meantime. However, the petitioner shall co-operate with the investigation," stated the order.

The Rajasthan High Court has on two occasions in the past dismissed the anticipatory bail application of Jayesh, and asked him to surrender first.

But in his petition before the Supreme Court, the accused challenged the registration of the FIR and also questioned the necessity of his arrest.

Senior advocate KTS Tulsi appeared for the petitioner and submitted that there is no recovery to be made at Jayesh's instance and that the charges did not warrant his arrest at all.

The bench agreed to examine the plea but made it clear that Jayesh should not run away from the investigation.

According to the FIR registered in Rajsamand district, Jayesh made a sex video and uploaded in the woman's laptop. He also allegedly hacked her gmail and posted the video there. This was done allegedly with an intent to torture the daughter-in-law over dowry demands.
