It is not a piece of good news for Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra. The new turn in the Raj Kundra case has made big revelations. The public prosecutor on Saturday informed the Bombay HC that “51 pornographic films were seized” from two apps by Mumbai crime branch and Raj Kundra and Ryan Thorpe were arrested as they had “started deleting WhatsApp group and chats”, hence “destroying evidence.”
Contesting against the remand by police Public prosecutor Aruna Pai strongly opposed the duo’s separate challenges to their arrest and remand which they said was “illegal” as there was “no compliance” to a CrPC notice for their explanation, mandated when an offence attracts a maximum of seven years’ punishment.

At a hearing via video-conferencing before the bench of Justice Ajay Gadkari, Pai said the duo is accused of “serious offenses of porn streaming content” and that police “also seized material from phone and storage device”. She said there was an “email message from Raj Kundra on his Hotshot app with Pardeep Bakshi, his brother-in-law, who owns a company in London.”
Police “found obscene and bold videos” and information on a number of subscribers, payments received, she said. Earlier, Aabad Ponda, Kundra’s counsel, had said police had not mentioned any deleting of chats in their first remand and questioned its noninclusion. The court will continue the hearing on Monday.
