Businessman Raj Kundra was arrested by Mumbai Police on July 19 after being booked for alleged production and distribution of pornographic films through apps under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act. The magistrate's court later remanded Kundra in judicial custody for 14 days. In a recent development, Kundra's lawyer had filed a bail plea in court which has been rejected.
Opposing the same, the public prosecutor alleged that Kundra is an influential man and granting him bail can affect the investigation. Quashing his claims, Kundra's lawyer affirmed that the businessman has been cooperating with the investigating agencies since the beginning.
