'Sex' doctor Prakash acquitted in cheating case

Court hammer
Chennai, Jan 6:  Dr L Prakash, currently serving a life sentence following conviction of cyber pornography, was on Friday acquitted in a cheating case by a city magistrate.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate R Killivalavan, concluding that the charges against Prakash and another person C K Kothari had not been proved beyond all reasonable doubt, absolved them of the charges.

The duo were charged with cheating youth by enticing them to study a course at a private firm on the assurance that after completing the course, they would be given employment abroad.

The two, who allegedly had not provided a proper course or job opportunities, were charged with cheating and criminal intimidation by the Central Crime Branch.

A Fast Track Court in 2008 had sentenced Prakash to life imprisonment for offences under the Information Technology Act, Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act and Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act for uploading obscene pictures of women on internet.
