A police official in Mumbai said on Tuesday that the Mumbai crime branch has appointed forensic auditors to investigate businessman Raj Kundra’s financial transactions and bank accounts after he was arrested in an adult film case.
In addition, he stated that Raj Kundra’s wife, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, has yet to receive a clean chit in the case. According to the official, the bank accounts under investigation include one joint account of Kundra’s Viaan Industries, a company at the centre of the alleged porn racket and where Shilpa Shetty was a director. Kundra has some bank accounts in which money has been deposited from abroad, he claims.So far, investigators have found no evidence of money flowing into any of Shilpa Shetty’s bank accounts from those under investigation, according to the official.
“However, because this is part of the investigation and account analysis is ongoing, there is no clean chit yet for Shetty,” he insisted.
“We have absolutely nothing to do with any personal bank account,” the official stated. Kundra was arrested by the crime branch on July 19 in connection with the alleged creation of pornographic films and their distribution via apps.
