Crime Branch Collects ‘Massive Data’ Of Porn Videos From Raj Kundra’s Office In Andheri West

According to Mumbai Police authorities privy to the investigation into the porn film racket case, which also involves industrialist Raj Kundra, he made over 100 porn movies in the last year and a half, using terabytes of electronic data (TB).

Sources in the crime branch said they seized “massive data” of porn videos during raids at Raj Kundra’s office in Andheri West, Mumbai, on the condition of anonymity. “A lot of data has been deleted and it will take time to retrieve it. The crime branch is taking the help of forensic experts to retrieve the data,” a source privy to the investigation said.

The server and equipment purportedly used to store this material have been seized by the authorities.

Officials from the police force claimed Raj Kundra began creating pornographic films in August 2019 and has earned a fortune from them.

“His app (HotShots) had nearly 20 lakh paid subscribers who had taken membership to watch porn. He was making a healthy profit from this large subscriber base. He made a mobile app to upload porn movies because it was more easily accessible than websites,” a police officer said.

Raj Kundra is also allegedly not complying with the police inquiry, according to sources in the criminal branch.

Kundra has claimed that he never made pornographic films, according to a criminal section official, “He does not answer questions and also denies most of the charges,”

Meanwhile, authorities maintain that they have “enough evidence” against him.

Raj Kundra and Ryan Thorpe, another suspect, are being held in police custody till July 23. The criminal branch will be approaching the court to have their custody extended so that they can conduct further investigation.

Raj Kundra was charged under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292 and 293 (obscene and indecent ads and displays), as well as the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.
