Shilpa Shety's husband Raj Kundra files fresh bail plea, denies role in alleged porn case

Mumbai/UNI: In a fresh bail application, businessman Raj Kundra, an accused in the pornographic content case, on Saturday once again denied the charges levelled against him.

He claimed that the supplementary charge sheet filed by the prosecution last week is silent on his role and on him being involved in creation of alleged questionable content.

In the bail plea, he said he was being made a "scapegoat" and there is not even an iota of evidence till date with the prosecution that would connect the app 'Hotshots' with an offence under law.

The crime branch, probing the case, had recently filed a supplementary charge sheet against Kundra and three others in the case pertaining to alleged creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some apps.

After that, the accused approached the metropolitan court for bail, saying the investigation in the case was practically over.

Kundra, husband of Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty, was arrested on July 19 after being booked under relevant sections of the IPC and the Information Technology Act. He is currently in judicial custody.

The bail plea also said that there is not a single allegation in the entire supplementary charge sheet against the present applicant (Kundra) that he was actively involved in any of the video.

The application will come up for hearing on Monday.
