On Monday, Raj Kundra was arrested in a pornography-related case and was taken to Esplanade Court on Tuesday afternoon. On Tuesday, Ryan Tharp was also arrested from the Nerul area. Raj Kundra and Ryan Tharp have been sent to police custody till July 23.
Hemant Nagrale, Mumbai Police Commissioner said that there was a case registered with Crime Branch Mumbai in February 2021 about the creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some Apps and mentioned that they have arrested Mr. Raj Kundra in this case on 19/7/21 as he appears to be the key conspirator of this.
After Kundra was arrested, he has been trending on social media. Two of his Twitter post from 2012 went viral, in which he talked about prostitution and pornography.
Gehana Vasisth, an actress who is out on bail in connection with the same case, said that the law will take its course. We have full faith in the Mumbai police, but they should not mix up porn with erotica or bold content. We have always said that the Mumbai police is the best force in the world.
The courts will eventually decide during the trial as to who are the real culprits and which of the arrested accused were merely used, by others, and we don’t want to comment anymore, as Gehana is on bail in the same cases, and she does not want to prejudice or impair her right to her defense. However, police should investigate fully as there are many more skeletons in the cupboards of the rich and famous.
