Raj Kundra Pornography Case has been the talk of the town since the arrest of Shilpa Shetty’s husband on July 19. Millionaire businessman Raj Kundra is in judicial custody since his arrest in the case of creating and distributing pornographic content and now his jail time has been extended.

The 14-days judicial custody of Raj Kundra has ended this Tuesday. In the hearing held on Tuesday, the crime branch listed out almost 19 reasons to oppose the bail of Kundra in the session court. After which, the court deferred his bail hearing till August 20.

According to the reports on Mid-day, the police has told the court that Shilpa Shetty’s husband wasn’t cooperating with the investigation. As their investigations continue, they said that a lot of evidence was yet to be collected while alleging that many more witnesses and victims were coming forward to record their testimony. They have mentioned that Kundra is an influential person, if he goes out on bail, he may destroy the pieces of evidence and influence the witnesses in the case. Moreover, the crime branch team also pointed out that Raj Kundra, who has British citizenship, might take the route of Nirav Modi, and Vijay Mallya fleeing from the country.

Kiran Bidve, who is the investigating officer, said in his reply that Raj Kundra destroyed a lot of evidence prior to his arrest and cited that he could erase more evidence if granted bail. He also mentioned that Kundra was working along with his London-based brother-in-law Pradeep Bakshi who is also wanted in the case. If he goes out on bail, he might influence him.
