Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. He has been arrested for being a key conspirator in a case related to the alleged creation of pornographic films and publishing them through mobile apps. Raj and 10 others have been taken into custody.
Raj Kundra 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.View this post on Instagram
After this case was highlighted, there were speculations citing the involvement of Shilpa Shetty in the case and people wanted to know if she had any sort of link-ups in the case. The police have finally broken their silence and released a statement. “We have not been able to any find any active role (of Shilpa Shetty) yet. We are investigating. We will appeal to the victims to come forward and contact the Crime Branch Mumbai and we’ll take appropriate action," joint commissioner of police (Crime), Milind Bharambe said as per Hindustan Times.View this post on Instagram
The nine persons arrested before Raj Kundra’s name popped up in the case include TV actress Gehna Vashisht, Yasmin R. Khan, Monu Joshi, Pratibha Nalavade, M. Atif Ahmed, Dipankar P. Khasnavis, Bhanusurya Thakur, Tanvir Hashmi, and Umesh Kamath who is the producer looking after the operations of ‘Hotshots’ in India.
Well, this is not the first time that Raj has grabbed the limelight for the wrong reasons. Back in 2013, it was reported that Raj was in touch with seven bookies and placed bets on his team through three IPL seasons. Both Raj and Shilpa owned a cricket team in the Indian Premier League that suffered a bad end because of the IPL betting case.View this post on Instagram
Last year, his name popped in a ‘gold scam and fraud’ as a Non-Resident Indian businessman, currently in Mumbai, Sachiin J. Joshi has claimed in a police complaint that he was reportedly lured and then cheated by SGPL's 'Satyug Gold Scheme', launched around 2014.
His controversies are never-ending and the list is endless, so it won’t be wrong to say he is controversy’s favourite child at the moment.
