French woman arrested for naked photos on Indian sacred bridge

A woman was taken into custody after filming herself naked on a sacred bridge in the northern Indian city of Rishikesh.

The 27-year-old tourist from France had been staying in Rishikesh since India imposed a national lockdown, in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The woman was tracked down after the videos appeared online on Friday, featuring herself and another woman “semi-naked” on the Laxman Jhula bridge reported the Times of India.

The bridge over the river Ganges is a holy site and scenic spot for visitors. The photos uploaded were found to be deeply offensive, with local council members filing a complaint with police under Indian laws forbidding the “transmission of obscene material” online.
