BUY-SELL | HELP WANTED | MATRIMONIAL

Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra got into major trouble after his name popped in the case linked to pornographic content. He has been making the headlines since he was arrested for making porn movies.

He has been booked under sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292, and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) of IPC besides relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.

He has been denying all the allegations leveled against him. According to the new updates as per ANI, Raj bribed officials of the Mumbai Police with Rs 25 lakh to evade arrest.

“ACB Maharashtra has confirmed that they received four emails from Arvind Shrivastava alias Yash Thakur in this regard, but his allegations of seeking a bribe from him and allegations against Raj Kundra bribing to evade arrest were quite vague in nature. The mails were forwarded to the Mumbai Police for further action on April 30, 2021,” an ACB official was quoted as saying by ANI.

Raj Kundra’s lawyer Abad Ponda went on to claim that the content might be vulgar in nature but can not be considered porn. He said, “The IT Act sections can’t be read with IPC sections, but here the police have done this. Section 67A of the IT Act talks about sexually explicit acts. Only the actual… intercourse can be considered porn. Rest all is just vulgar content.”

He further added, “Police is following what web series are doing these days – vulgar content. But that’s not really classified as porn. Nothing in this remand shows that two people actually indulged in act of intercourse. If it’s not actual intercourse, it’s not classified as porn.”

He also questioned the arrest of Raj Kundra and said, “Police custody should be an exception and not a norm. Arrest should be made only when the investigation cannot move further without the arrest. In this case, the accused was made to join the investigation once he was arrested. The arrest wasn’t made as per law.”
