Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty's husband and businessman Raj Kundra on Friday moved the Bombay High Court challenging a local court’s order remanding him to police custody.
Raj has been named as a key accused in a case related to making pornographic video clips and sharing them through mobile apps.
He was arrested on July 19. A Mumbai court on Friday extended his police custody, along with alleged aide Ryan Thorpe, till July 27.
Raj has argued in the petition that his arrest was illegal as no prior notice was served to him. He has also contended that the videos are not pornographic, as they did not show any sexual intercourse scenes.
Last year, the businessman's name had emerged in a similar case filed by the Maharashtra Cyber police. He then had filed for anticipatory bail and the court is expected to take up his application next week.
