Raj Kundra arrested in pornography case
In an adult film racket businessman Raj Kundra has been arrested. Raj Kundra is the husband of actor and businesswoman Shilpa Shetty, was arrested by the Mumbai Police on Monday in connection with an adult film racket.
There were two aspects of the police probe. One was nabbing those who produced the porn shows and the other focused on those who broadcast the clips.
Sources said, Kundra had applied for anticipatory bail last month in connection with another case registered by the Maharashtra Cyber police last year.
On 4th February, the Mumbai police said they had arrested five people for allegedly forcing women into porn movies. They would promise these aspiring actresses, who came to Mumbai from various parts of the country, roles in web series. As reported by Indian Express.
However, on the day of the shoot, they would change the script and threaten the women to expose themselves. If the women refused, they were asked to foot the bill for the shooting preparations.
Once the movies were shot, the accused made them available on mobile apps, offering subscriptions on the lines of mainstream OTT platforms. They would then put up advertisements on social media platforms. Since pornography is illegal in India, this too was against the law.
According to policemen, it would normally be a daylong shoot at a rented bungalow on the outskirts of Mumbai, like Madh Island. There would be a minimal staff of five to six people who would double up as directors, dialogue writers, locations scouters and web app developers. These apps became especially popular during the lockdown, with some having a subscriber base in lakhs, said the police
