The complaint, which was filed in Delhi’s Tis Hazari District Court, names Snapdeal and Chennai-based adult sexual wellness and products website OhMySecrets.com of exhibiting and selling ‘obscene’ products and accessories, such as vibrators and lubricants.

However, according to various media reports, advocate Suhaas Joshi, who filed the complaint, has claimed that he was not against homosexuality, but that his intent of filing the complaint was “to test the limits of India antihomosexuality law.”
