Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra was arrested in connection with a pornographic film racket and had earned over USD 158,057 that valued around rupees 1.17 crore from his Hotshots app subscribers on Apple’s App Store.

 

Mumbai Police Crime Branch revealed in their remand application while seeking the extension of his custody.

 

The Crime team are yet to investigate the details of the businessman’s earnings from the subscribers of the mobile phone app on Google Play Store.

 

The police alleged that the app had more users on Google Play store than the Apple store before it was removed, so the businessman must have earned much more profit from it.

 

The Mumbai Police has also investigated the documents recovered from the nine files seized from his office during a search on July 24.

 

The police told the court that the statement of a woman who alleged that she was tricked into acting in a porn film was recorded on July 26 and many more victims were likely to come forward.

 

Reportedly, the court that had granted one extension of the custody earlier has rejected the police`s remand and sent the businessman in judicial custody for 14 days.

 

Businessman Raj Kundra was arrested on July 19 on distribution of pornographic content. He has also contended that the films made by him which the police claimed to be pornographic did not depict direct or explicit sexual acts.
