Businessman Raj Kundra, who is an accused in the pornographic content case, on Saturday moved a bail application in a court in Mumbai. It claimed that he was being made a â€œscapegoatâ€ and that there was not single evidence in the supplementary chargesheet of him being actively involved in the creation of alleged pornographic content. Currently, Kundra is in the judicial custody after he was arrested on July 19 and was booked under relevant sections of the IPC and the Information Technology Act.
Recently, the crime branch had filed a supplementary chargesheet against Raj and three others in the case of creating pornographic films and publishing them through apps. After that, Raj approached the metropolitan court for bail, saying that the investigation in the case was practically over.
According to the reports, in the bail, filed through advocate Prashant Patil, Raj claimed that there is no evidence till date that would connect the application ‘Hotshots’ with an offence under the law. But as per the probe agency, the application was being used by him for uploading and streaming the alleged content. The bail plea also said that there is not a single allegation in the chargesheet claiming that he was actively involved in the video shootings.
The bail plea further claimed that it is a sole discretion of the individual artists to upload their contents on the app and the contents of the complaint do not disclose any prima-facie offence against Kundra. Therefore, Raj is being falsely implicated in the case, said the plea.
