Raj Kundra, Shilpa Shetty’s husband, was detained by Mumbai Police on July 19 in a pornographic case. Officials had already stated that he was the case’s “lead conspirator.” He, along with Ryan Tharp, who was also arrested in the same case on Tuesday morning in the Nerul area, has been placed in judicial custody until July 23.
Soon after Raj’s arrest, Mumbai Police looked into if his wife Shilpa was involved in the case. So yet, the cops haven’t discovered any evidence about her. Milind Bharambe, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime), said in 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.”
Meanwhile, according to recent sources, Raj Kundra, also known as Ripu Sudan Kundra, is listed as a director in as many as nine companies. He is a director of Shilpa Yog Private Limited, which is well known for the actress Shilpa Shetty’s name, but he is not a director. Cinemation Media Works, Bastian Hospitality, Kundra Constructions, J.L. Stream, Aqua Energy Beverages, Viaan Industries, Whole and Them Some Private Limited, and Clearcom Private Media are among the companies where Kundra is named as a director. Shilpa is listed as a director in 23 different businesses. She has previously served as a director of a few businesses that have since been deregistered.
Hemant Nagrale, Mumbai Police Commissioner, announced Raj’s arrest in a statement “There was a case registered with Crime Branch Mumbai in February 2021 about the creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some Apps. We’ve arrested Mr Raj Kundra in this case on 19/7/21 as he appears to be the key conspirator of this.”
