The Mumbai Police late on Monday arrested businessman Raj Kundra, the husband of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, for allegedly making pornographic content and publishing them through mobile applications. He has been sent to judicial custody till July 23 along with his partner Ryan Tharp, who was also arrested in the same case.
On Tuesday, Kundra’s lawyer made an argument in court that it is incorrect to classify the content as pornography. He also objected to the application of Section 67A of the Information Technology Act on sending obscene content in electronic form along with other sections with respect to pornography as these laws consider “actual intercourse” as porn and the rest everything is termed as vulgar content.

The lawyer further said that the cops are following what web shows are working these days – vulgar content. However, it is not classified as porn. He added that nothing in this remand shows that two persons indulged in an act of intercourse. Hence, it cannot be called porn.
Talking about Raj’s arrest, the lawyer said that arrest should be made only when the investigation cannot go ahead without it. And in this case, the accused was made to join the investigation after his arrest. The lawyer concluded that Kundra’s arrest wasn’t made as per law.
Raj Kundra had sought anticipatory bail in the case. Also, the police clarified that they couldn’t find any involvement of Shilpa Shetty in the same.
