The court held that watching explicit material is a person's individual choice. Any interference with this choice would amount to an intrusion of an individual's privacy. As a result, viewing an obscene photo or video in private is not a violation of Section 292 of the IPC, which addresses the sale, distribution, and display of obscene material.
The court emphasized that to establish an offense under Section 292, there must be evidence demonstrating public exhibition, distribution, or sale of explicit material. Mere private consumption, according to the judgment, does not constitute an offense.
