While the raids were conducted, Shilpa Shetty’s statement was also conducted by the cops. The actress has reportedly mentioned that ‘erotica’ is different from ‘porn’, for which her husband has been accused of, and that he is not involved in producing porn content. While Raj Kundra’s lawyer has also stated that it would be incorrect to classify the content as pornography. He also objected to the application of Section 67A of the Information Technology Act. He has stated that these laws consider “actual intercourse” as porn and everything else is termed as vulgar content and that it cannot be classified as porn.
According to the latest developments in this controversial case, ANI reported that Raj was anticipating his arrest after the Mumbai Police took nine people into custody in connection with the creation and distribution of pornography. Hence, he had readied a ‘Plan B’ to avoid investigation and had also changed his phone in March so that data from his mobile could not be recovered. The Mumbai Police have also seized Raj Kundra’s laptop and a the SAN (Storage Area Network) box. Officials told TOI, “We accessed 48 TB data. Huge data was deleted once our case was filed on instructions from Raj Kundra. Also, after Kundra’s arrest, more data was deleted.” While he is in judicial custody, Raj Kundra’s lawyers have applied for bail and the hearing is scheduled to take place on July 28.
