The Mumbai Police Commissioner, Hemant Nagrale confirmed the controversial arrest in a statement that read, “There was a case registered with Crime Branch Mumbai in February 2021 about the creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some Apps. We’ve arrested Mr Raj Kundra in this case on 19/7/21 as he appears to be the key conspirator of this.” After his arrest, the 45-year-old businessman was taken for medical examination to the JJ hospital by the Property Cell of Mumbai Police’s Crime Branch. Following his arrest, several old tweets of Raj Kundra started going viral on the internet. His Twitter post from 2012, debating about ‘porn vs prostitution’ is being massively shared on social media. In his tweets, Raj had questioned why it was legal to pay someone for sex on camera, asking how prostitution was different from porn. He had written, “Ok so here go’s Porn Vs Prostitution. Why is it legal to pay someone for sex on camera? How is one different to the other??” Raj Kundra is also being trolled for his Twitter bio that reads, ‘Life is about making the right choices’.
On Tuesday, the Mumbai Police made yet another arrest in this case. According to ANI, Mumbai Police Crime Branch has arrested one Ryan Tharp from the Nerul area, in connection with a case relating to the production of Pornography.
