If the private part of the woman is visible in the video or if the woman is seen in the innerwear or is seen using the toilet or is seen doing any work which she cannot do in public, then action will be taken against her. Let us tell you that if found guilty under these sections, for the first time the mistake can be punished from 1 to 3 years and later from 3 to 7 years. Along with this, a fine can also be imposed on the guilty person.
