Following his arrest and police custody extension, Raj Kundra’s lawyer, advocate Subhash Jadhav stated they will move High Court in the matter. Tagging the arrest as illegal, he added, “Raj Kundra’s arrest is illegal. There is not a single video which can be called pornographic. A 4000 page charge sheet has been filed but the police were not even able to point out any sexually explicit act in the video which demonstrated illegality under section 67a. Rest of the section applied are bailable. The Supreme Court had earlier released Munawar Farooqui on the same grounds.”
The Mumbai Crime Branch also raided Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty’s Juhu bungalow on July 23. Shilpa Shetty was questioned in the matter and the actress has denied her involvement in the company, claiming she was not aware of the exact content of the controversial HotShots app in question, which was used for distribution of adult content. She also mentioned that erotica is different from porn, for which her husband has been accused of, and that he is not involved in producing porn content.
While searching Raj Kundra’s properties in Mumbai, the cops found a hidden cupboard at the businessman’s Viaan Industries office in Andheri. A forensic auditing Viaan Industries, Armsprime and Hotshot app is being conducted. An official told TOI, “We have brought these files, which will be studied by the forensic auditing team. We are sending eight servers seized from Kundra’s office for forensic analysis as prima facie we have found pornographic data deleted after the police busted the racket in February. Experts can find out whether these servers have been used to upload pornographic material to Kenrin.”
