A Mumbai Court granted Bail to Businessman Raj Kundra, who was arrested in July in connection with the alleged production and publication of Pornographic films on Mobile Applications.

Kundra claimed in his plea, filed through Advocate Prashant Patil, that he was being used as a “scapegoat” without any conclusive evidence, and that he should be released as the investigation against him has completed.

The Bail Plea stated, “There is not a single allegation in the entire supplementary Charge sheet against Kundra that he was actively involved in any of the video shootings. The contents of the complaint do not disclose any prima-facie offence against Kundra.”

The Plea further stated, “Kundra was falsely implicated in the case. He was not named in the FIR and he has been dragged by the Police.

The Mumbai Police had objected to the plea, claiming that if Kundra was granted Bail, he could tamper with evidence and influence witnesses.

However, Metropolitan Magistrate SB Bhajipale found substance in Kundra’s arguments and released him on Bail.
