According to reports, the crime branch told the court that Kundra was not cooperating in the case and if granted bail, he might commit the crime again or even try to flee the country. The victims in the case are women from poor financial backgrounds and, if the accused is out on bail, they might not come forward with crucial evidence, the police said.
Meanwhile, a director of one of Raj Kundra’s companies was arrested in connection with the pornography case on Thursday, city police said. The director was identified as Abhijeet Bomble, a director of one of the firms being investigated by the crime branch.
Kundra, who is married to actor Shilpa Shetty, was arrested last month for allegedly producing and distributing porn films through an app. A related offence was registered at Malvani police station on the complaint of a 25-year-old model who alleged that she was promised roles in shorts films and web series, but in the name of bold scenes, she was forced to perform nude scenes. Bomble was named as one of the accused, in this case, the police official said.
