The Bombay High Court on Monday reserved its order on petitions filed by Raj Kundra and his associates Ryan Thorpe. The two had challenged their arrest in a pornography-related case.
In the court, the police argued that Kundra was not cooperating with the case filed in February by the Mumba Police Crime Branch and had destroyed the evidence. The claim was refuted by Kundra's lawyer. In their application, Shilpa Shetty's husband and Ryan Thorpe termed their arrest as illegal, contending mandatory provision of issuing notices to them under section 41A of the Code of Criminal Procedure(CrPC) was not followed.
The Public Prosecutor also said, “Kundra is the admin of the app HotShots (which is at the centre of the alleged porn racket). During searches, the police seized a laptop from the office of Kundra in which 68 porn videos were recovered. This is in addition to the 51 videos recovered earlier from the Storage Area Network.”
Kundra was arrested on the night of July 19 by the Mumbai Police, While Ryan Thorpe who was employed as the IT head in Kundra's firm was arrested on July 20 morning. Both are in judicial custody at present.
