Mumbai: Businessman Raj Kundra, arrested in a case related to alleged creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some apps, was on Tuesday remanded in police custody till July 23 by a Mumbai court, after the crime branch alleged he was making financial gains through this illegal business.
The police claimed there were several WhatsApp chats that revealed Kundra (45), the husband of Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty, was involved in the financial dealings of the app and its contents.
The police also said three women have come forward with complaints in the case, saying they were “forced to act in pornographic movies”.

Kundra was taken into custody on Monday night by the city police’s crime branch after being booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act.
