Businessman Raj Kundra who was arrested on July 19 by the Mumbai Crime Branch for being the ‘mastermind’ behind a pornography racket, had filed a writ petition in the Bombay High Court terming his arrest as illegal. The Bombay High Court has reserved its verdict after hearing both parties.
Speaking on the writ petition in the Bombay High Court that Raj Kundra had filed terming his arrest illegal, the public prosecutor said that Raj Kundra is a British citizen. He also mentioned that Raj was destroying the evidence and there was a possibility of him destroying the evidence further. Apart from this, the public prosecutor mentioned that Raj Kundra was not cooperating in the investigation and had also refused to take a notice of 41A.
The investigating agencies have recovered 51 adult movies from Storage Area Network (SAN) and 68 adult movies from Raj and Ryan Thorpe’s (his associate) laptops. The public prosecutor said, in such a scenario, Raj Kundra’s arrest is not only valid but also very important for further investigation.
Meanwhile, actress Sherlyn Chopra on Friday recorded her statement with the Property Cell of the Mumbai Crime Branch in the pornography case. Earlier on Thursday, Director of Armsprime Media Private Limited Saurabh Kushwaha was summoned for questioning by the Property Cell of Mumbai Crime Branch.
As for Raj and Ryan’s bail, a Mumbai Sessions Court will hear the pleas of Raj and Ryan on August 10.
