Nishant was produced before a court here on Friday and remanded in police custody till September 25, said Inspector Chakshupal Bahadure.
According to a complaint filed by his wife and her father, Nishant was training at the National Academy of Direct Taxes here as IRS officer along with his wife when he prepared the alleged sex tape.
Nishant’s mother and sister have also been booked and the police were on the lookout for them. “They were last seen in Chennai but have apparently fled the place,” Bahadure told The Indian Express.
Nishant and his wife had met at NADT while undergoing training in 2010. They got married in February this year. According to the complaint with the police, the family of Nishant’s wife had gifted 10 tolas of gold during the marriage. But Nishant now wanted a car and Rs 10 lakh more.
