Raj Kundra Pornography Case – Websites and Content Revealed
Raj Kundra, a businessman, was arrested by Mumbai Police on July 19 after being charged with allegedly producing and distributing pornographic films through apps in violation of relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act.
Kundra was later remanded in judicial custody for 14 days by the magistrate's court. In a recent development, Kundra's lawyer filed a bail petition in court, which was denied.
The public prosecutor objected, claiming that Kundra is a powerful man and that granting him bail would jeopardise the investigation.
Kundra's lawyer refuted his claims, stating that the businessman has been cooperating with the investigating agencies since the beginning.
Why Raj Kundra Got Arrested ?
Kundra had previously told the court that he intended to sell 119 adult films to a single person for USD 1.2 million.
According to the police, during the investigation, it was discovered that Kundra established Armsprime Media Pvt Ltd, which purchased the 'Hotshots' app through London-based Kenrin Pvt Ltd in order to upload objectionable videos on social media.
During searches at the accused's office, the police claimed to have discovered 51 obscene videos, 35 with the Hotshots logo and 16 with the BollyFame logo.
Net Profit of Raj Kundra Through Porn Films
The Mumbai Police Crime Branch appears to be making more progress in the pornographic film racket involving Shilpa Shetty's businessman husband Raj Kundra with each passing day.
Raj's company uses Bollyfame as a backup app after the adult film content app Hotshots was banned from Google Play and Apple last year.
According to a leading daily, the charge sheet contains a presentation that projected gross revenue of Rs 146 crore and a net profit of around Rs 34 crore for the fiscal year 2023-24. It also included revenue and net profit figures for the fiscal years 2021-22 and 2022-23.
Other Cases on Raj Kundra
According to sources, Kundra will soon face money laundering and Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) cases against him, as the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is likely to file cases against him under these Acts.
Currently, the case involves the alleged creation of pornographic films and their distribution via various apps.
The Mumbai Police have named Kundra as a key conspirator and charged him under Sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292 and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), as well as relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
