JAMMU, India — Anara Gupta, a Bollywood screen queen facing prosecution for allegedly appearing in an adult video, was granted a temporary reprieve after an independent forensic lab attested that Gupta was not the woman in the video and police admitted to illegally detaining the actress.

Gupta’s case was supposed to be heard by a regional court Friday, but the judged chose to refer the case to a higher court at a later date in light of the new information.

Earlier in the week, four police officers admitted they had illegally detained Gupta for nine days. Gupta claimed the police also had tortured her in order to gain a false confession regarding the video and is now planning to sue the police for compensation.

The case dates back to October, when police raided Gupta’s house and took her into custody for nine days before a formal case was registered. During the detention, police allowed the media to photograph her in humiliating circumstances.

Gupta said she broke under the pressure and made a false confession. Officials then contracted with a lab to run a forensic test on the video, and the lab issued a report claiming the women in the video was, in fact, Gupta.

However, Gupta later retracted her statement, and her lawyers had the video assessed by a second lab, which testified that Gupta was not in the video.

The case has now been referred to India’s high court, and the next hearing is a scheduled for April 2.
