Earlier today, a team from the Mumbai Crime Branch investigated Shilpa Shetty’s Juhu residence. Shetty was then questioned about her husband’s connection in the pornographic racket. According to sources, the questioning session went on for more than six hours. Raj Kundra was also present during the session.
Shilpa was asked whether she was aware of the alleged racket involving the creation and distribution of pornographic content. The crime branch also wanted to inquire why Shilpa resigned as a director of position at Viaan Industries in 2020.
As per the police report, the racket was mainly operated from the office of Viaan Industries. Apart from this, the crime branch will also look into Shilpa’s bank account to see if she profited from the racket.
Mumbai Police recently raided the office of Viaan Industries in Andheri (West) and claimed to have seized up to 20 TB porn film data. But the crime branch said that approximately 1 TB of data had been deleted after Raj Kundra’s arrest. Investigators will go through CCTV of the office to figure out who deleted the data. Kundra’s judicial custody was also extended to July 27.
Police are investigating whether profit earned from the pornography racket was diverted to the cricket betting company by Raj Kundra,” a source said.
Meanwhile, the cases against Raj Kundra are registered under the sections of the Indian Penal Code, Information Technology Act, and Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) A.
