The Enforcement Directorate has registered a money laundering case against Shilpa Shetty’s businessman-husband, Raj Kundra, along with some others, and will soon summon them for interrogation. The case is based on a Bombay police FIR against Kundra and others for allegedly running pornographic apps.

The ED is investigating the financial transactions of Raj Kundra and the other accused. The case was registered last week after examining the collected details.

It may be recalled that the police in February 2021, raided a bungalow at Madh Island in Bombay and busted an alleged porn filmmaking racket, in which Kundra was named and arrested. Shilpa’s husband was subsequently released on bail. He had been accused of uploading pornographic and obscene videos on a social media app for monetary consideration. The police had alleged that Kundra had a stake in UK-based Kenrin and was involved in the production and distribution of pornographic material.

Raj Kundra was the owner of Viaan Industries Ltd. while his UK-based brother-in-law, Pradeep Bakshi, was chairman of Kenrin. Both the companies were involved in the mobile phone app called Hotshots Digital Entertainment, developed by Kenrin. It is reported that Raj supplied the content and controlled the UK firm from his Viaan office.
