Mumbai court refuses bail to Raj Kundra


Mumbai Aug 11(ILNS): A local court in Mumbai has rejected the anticipatory bail application of businessman Raj Kundra, who was arrested last month for producing and uploading adult film content on mobile applications like Hotshots.

A Sessions Court on Tuesday rejected the bail plea of Kundra in connection with a First Information Report (FIR) of 2020, alleging that certain online platforms were publishing obscene videos as part of their web series.

The order came days after the Bombay High Court dismissed the plea filed by Kundra, husband of Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty, continuing his remand to custody and subsequent orders of the Metropolitan Magistrate in another FIR in the porn film racket case.

The 2020 FIR was registered for offenses under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) pertaining to obscenity, the Information Technology Act, and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prevention) Act.

A few arrests were made in the case, including of actor Gehana Vashist, an employee in the tech company of Kundra, which owned the mobile application Hotshot of a tech start-up linked with Kundra. She was granted bail in April 2021.

Kundra was summoned by the police when he purportedly submitted of not having links to the alleged offense, as he had exited the company. He also submitted to the police all relevant documents pertaining to the investments made and his exit from the company.

Citing these grounds in his application, Kundra approached the Sessions Court seeking pre-arrest bail, where he also assured of co-operating with the police for investigation./ILNS
