Mumbai, Nov 14 (UNI) Advocate Vinod Parikh, representing film producer Pooja Bhatt and others for their alleged involvement in displaying obscene posters of her film 'Rog' at public places, today filed reply in Sessions court on a revision petition filed by city-based social activist Vinod Jain.

Thereafter, Additional Sessions Judge S T Mahajan fixed December 18 as the date for the final hearing and then, order on it.

Mr Jain said he filed the revision application to challenge the magistrate court's earlier order, discharging Ms Bhatt and others.

He said under section 239 of Indian Penal Code (IPC), discharge application in private complaint was not applicable.

The Fish Eye Network director Pooja Bhatt, Shreeya Creation and Sujit Kumar Singh had filed discharge application on the ground that the poster, which was displayed in the city, was not an ''obscene'' one.

On July 14 this year, Magistrate G R Wankhade had discharged them from all charges saying that there was no sufficient evidence against Ms Bhatt and others.

Mr Jain has stated in his application that the posters that were displayed at public places were obscene and against Indian culture.

The poster in question portrayed a South African model Ilene Hamman.
