Mumbai: Raj Kundra files discharge plea in adult films case
Businessman Raj Kundra, who was booked last year by the Mumbai police in connection with alleged creation and uploading of pornographic films on mobile applications, has filed an application for discharge from the case.
Kundra, the husband of actor Shilpa Shetty, was arrested in July 2021 and granted bail in September by a metropolitan magistrate’s court. In his plea, he denied any link with the sale of pornographic material and said he had invested in Armsprime Media Pvt Ltd (AMPL) but it was a matter of record that it had nothing to do with the pornographic content.
His plea further says that the first chargesheet did not have any material against him and the supplementary one does not state that victims have been coerced or threatened by Kundra or the IT head of his company, Ryan Thorpe, who was also arrested.
