Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty`s husband arrested

Indian police have arrested Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty's businessman-husband Raj Kundra for allegedly making and uploading on OTT (over-the-top) platforms a number of pornograhic films.

Raj was taken into custody late on Monday evening by the crime branch of the Mumbai police in India's entertainment capital, after hours of questioning in a case involving the creation of pornograhic films that was lodged in February this year.

According to police officials, the pornograhic films were shot in India and then transferred to Britain via a UK-based firm. The Mumbai police have arrested a total of nine people in this case.

"There was a case registered with the crime branch Mumbai in February 2021 about the creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some apps. We've arrested Raj Kundra in this case as he appears to be the key conspirator of this," the Mumbai police said in a statement.

Though cops claimed to possess "sufficient evidences" against Raj, the 45-year-old British-Indian businessman insisted that he was innocent.

In 2013, Raj hogged media limelight after he was grilled by Delhi Police in connection with a betting and spot-fixing scandal that rocked the multi-million dollar cricketing tournament Indian Premier League. He's a co-owner of the Rajasthan Royals team.
