The Mumbai court has granted bail to businessman and actor Shilpa Shetty's husband Raj Kundra in the pornography case on a surety bond of Rs 50,000.
Along with Raj Kundra, accused Ryan Thorpe has also been granted bail in the pornography case.
Kundra (46) had filed a bail plea before the court, claiming there was not a single evidence against him in a supplementary chargesheet filed by the Mumbai police crime branch in the case.
In the plea, Rak Kundra had claimed there was no evidence of him being “actively” involved in the creation of alleged questionable porn content and that he was being made a “scapegoat” in the case.
The crime branch, probing the case, had recently filed a supplementary chargesheet in the court against Raj Kundra and three others in the case pertaining to the alleged creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some apps, including HotShots.
Kundra, husband of Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty, was arrested on July 19 after being booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act.
