Big blow to Raj Kundra, Bombay High Court rejects anticipatory bail plea


Businessman Raj Kundra, the husband of actress Shilpa Shetty, has suffered a major setback. The Bombay High Court has rejected Raj's anticipatory bail in the pornographic film racket case. Recently, while filing a petition in the court, Raj had said that the videos made by his production company were erotic but not with adult content. The court did not hear all these arguments of Raj and rejected the bail application. Apart from Raj Kundra, a total of 6 people including actress Poonam Pandey and Sherlyn Chopra had filed this petition for anticipatory bail.


Dismissing the petition, Justice NW Sambre dismissed the bail pleas of all these accused to avoid any legal action. Earlier on July 19, Raj Kundra was arrested in this case. Raj is out on bail after spending two months in jail. Raj Kundra's lawyers had given additional documents to the court to defend him saying that Raj is a UK citizen and his name is not in the FIR but the court did not hear. A case has been registered against Raj Kundra under sections of the Indian Penal Code and IT Act for making the obscene films.
