Actress Sherlyn Chopra has finally come forward as she released an official statement on Raj Kundra’s ongoing pornography case. He was arrested on July 19 by the Crime Branch of Mumbai Police as evidence against him had been found. Raj Kundra has been named the ‘key conspirator’ in the case.
Sherlyn Chopra has released a video statement where she has revealed that she was the first person to give her statement to the Maharashtra cyber cell. She didn’t divulge into further details as the investigation on the case is still on.
Sherlyn also took a dig at Poonam Pandey in the video. Poonam had moved the Bombay High Court to file a criminal case against Raj Kundra and his associates, who used her photos and video for her app long after their contract had ended.
During investigation, the Crime Branch found around 70 videos that had been shot by Kundra’s former PA Umesh Kamat with the help of different production houses. Raj, who was arrested on 19 July has been remanded to police custody till July 23. His partner Ryan Tharp was also arrested by the Mumbai Police on the same day.
On Tuesday during his hearing at a court in Mumbai, Raj Kundra’s lawyer presented the argument that it is incorrect to classify the content seized as pornography. He also objected to the application of Section 67A of the Information Technology Act on sending obscene content in electronic form along with other sections with respect to pornography as these laws consider “actual intercourse” as porn and the rest everything is termed as vulgar content.
