Ever since the arrest of Raj Kundra in the porn movies case, it was being speculated that the crime branch team of Mumbai Police would also summon Shilpa Shetty. Although the police did not call Shilpa to the police station, she herself reached her house on Friday. The police had also taken Raj Kundra along and asked questions and answers by sitting together Kundra and Shilpa for about 6 hours. After this the police returned with Kundra.
However, it is not known what questions the police asked Shilpa. But sources say that Shilpa was fully aware of Raj Kundra’s adult app Hotshots and its content. Kundra had called many times to Shilpa’s bank account to earn a huge amount of money from this app.
Mumbai Police investigation revealed that Kundra’s Hotshots app had more than two million subscribers. Shilpa is accused of deliberately hiding information about Kundra’s wrongdoings. Shilpa is also a partner in his adult content company ‘Kenrin’. Many girls have also said in their statement that they were talked to Shilpa before joining acting.
Raj Kundra has approached the Bombay High Court against his arrest. Kundra has termed his arrest as illegal. He says that the police did not give him a notice under 41A. Let us tell you that the notice of 41A is for production in front of the police. If the person complies with this notice, he cannot be arrested, he can only be taken for questioning.
Raj Kundra’s police custody was ending on Friday, but the Esplanade Court has extended the custody till July 27. His colleague Ryan Thorpe has also been sent to custody till July 27. Kundra is currently in Byculla jail. Those in police custody are kept here. So far 11 people including Raj Kundra have been arrested in connection with the porn movies racket that surfaced in February 2021.
Mumbai Police has made another disclosure during Kundra’s court appearance on Friday. It was told by the police that Kundra was about to sell 121 porn videos internationally for Rs 9 crore.
