Raj Kundra

MUMBAI: On Monday (July 19), Shilpa Shetty‘s husband Raj Kundra was arrested by the Mumbai Police for his alleged involvement in a porn film racket. 

After he was produced before the court on Tuesday, Kundra along with one of his partners was sent to police custody till July 23. Police have claimed that Raj Kundra was a key conspirator who was involved in creating and publishing porn films via online apps. 

Also, speaking to the media, Milind Bharambe, joint Commissioner of Police (Crime Branch) said, “Documents of financial transactions run into thousands. We are analysing the details to get exact earnings. The same will be treated as proceeds of crime. So far, we have frozen Rs 7.5 crore in various accounts.”. 

The officer also said that Kundra would earn lakhs daily and the amount later increased to Rs 6-8 lakh daily. He also said that they haven’t found any involvement of Shilpa Shetty in the case yet. “We have not been able to any find any active role (of Shilpa Shetty) yet. We are investigating. We will appeal to the victims to come forward and contact the Crime Branch Mumbai and we’ll take appropriate action.”, said Bharambe.

As per the latest report in a leading daily, Raj Kundra was avoiding arrest till now by bribing Crime Branch officers by paying Rs 25 lakh. The report stated that Arvind Srivastava alias Yash Thakur, an absconding accused (named as the kingpin of the racket, complained to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) via email in March about Raj Kundra.

As per another report, the crime branch has recovered at least 70 videos shot by Raj Kundra’s former PA Umesh Kamat with the help of different production houses. He is also arrested. On Wednesday, it was reported that Raj Kundra’s servers have been seized by the Crime Branch. The servers will be sent for forensic analysis to rule out if Kundra used it to distribute pornographic material to the UK-based company.

Meanwhile, Raj Kundra’s lawyer said in court that it is incorrect to label the adult film content as porn as there wasn’t any 'actual intercourse' shown in the videos. He stated that "'vulgar' content cannot be classified as 'porn'.".
