The Mumbai Police Commissioner, Hemant Nagrale confirmed the arrest in a statement that read, “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.”
He also went on to state, “We have sufficient evidence regarding this. The investigation is in progress.”
Kundra has been slammed with IPC sections of cheating, indulging in the obscene act in public places and publicly exhibiting or circulating obscene books or literature and under the Information Technology Act.
Raj Kundra will spend the night in the custody of the Crime Branch, Mumbai. He will be placed in the property cell office.

Meanwhile, Kundra and his associate, Saurabh Kushwah denied Pandey’s claims and said that they haven’t received any notice till now.
