Kanpur: In connection with the pornography racket case, the Mumbai Crime Branch directed on Sunday the seizure of two State Bank accounts of businessman and actor Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra in Kanpur, according to State Bank Of India officials.
The SBI officials added that crores of rupees had been deposited in these two bank accounts. After the bank accounts were seized on Sunday, another matter involving Kundra came to light. According to the sources, Arvind Srivastava ran Raj Kundra’s production company, and the money was transferred to Arvind Srivastava’s wife Harshita.
“In the last two years, Arvind has not come home and he sends money from time to time in the name of household expenses,” Arvind’s father, NP Srivastava, who lives in the Shyam Nagar region, told ANI. According to NP Srivastava, the Mumbai Crime Branch issues a lookout notice for Arvind in February 2021. However, Arvind’s father stated that he is unaware of Arvind’s work or the money transferred to Harshita’s bank account. A day after four Raj Kundra employees testified against him in the Pornography Racket case.
Kundra, along with 11 other people, was arrested by the Mumbai Police late on July 19 on charges related to the alleged creation of pornographic films and will remain in the custody of the Mumbai Crime Branch until July 27.
On Sunday, the Mumbai Crime Branch’s property cell summoned television actor and model Gehana Vasisth and two others for questioning in connection with a pornography case. Meanwhile, during searches for the pornographic film case, the Mumbai Police Crime Branch discovered a hidden cupboard in Kundra’s Viaan and the JL Stream office in Mumbai’s Andheri.
