Raj Kundra got arrested news: Raj Kundra, a businessman, was detained on Monday for allegedly being a “major conspirator” in a case involving the creation of pornographic film clips and their distribution via mobile applications, according to The Indian Express. He is the spouse of Shilpa Shetty, an actress.
Women were allegedly forced into filming the pornographic videos with promises of acting opportunities, according to the authorities. Some of those detained were the owners of streaming websites where pornographic videos could be accessed for a charge.
According to the authorities, Kundra’s name came up in connection with one of the firms that featured the porn clips on internet platforms.
The Indian Express quoted Mumbai Police Commissioner Hemant Nagrale as saying, “We have arrested Raj Kundra in this matter on 19/7/21 since he looks to be the major conspirator of this.” “In this case, we have adequate proof. “An investigation is underway.”
After being called for questioning in the matter, Kundra was detained. According to the police, 11 persons have been arrested in the case since it was filed in February, including Kundra.
Kundra was brought for medical checkup at JJ Hospital in Mumbai by the police after his detention, according to ANI. Later, the entrepreneur was escorted to the office of the Mumbai Police Commissioner.
According to the Hindustan Times, Kundra has been charged under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 420 (cheating), 292 (sale, etc., of obscene books and other material), 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays), and 34 (common intention) as well as relevant sections of the Information Technology Act.
In addition, the businessman was charged with violating the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
Kundra’s name surfaced in a similar complaint filed by the Maharashtra Cyber police last year. He then applied for anticipatory bail, which the court is likely to consider next week.
