Speaking to TOI, an official stated, “We have brought these files, which will be studied by the forensic auditing team. We are sending eight servers seized from Kundra’s office for forensic analysis as prima facie we have found pornographic data deleted after the police busted the racket in February. Experts can find out whether these servers have been used to upload pornographic material to Kenrin.” Apart from documents, Raj Kundra’s laptop and the SAN (Storage Area Network) box have also been seized by the officials. Apart from the Crime Branch, the Enforcement Directorate is also likely to join the probe to investigate the money laundering angle as a suspicious financial transaction between Raj and the South African bank account of Mercury International company (online betting and casino gaming) emerged during the probe.
On July 23, the Mumbai Crime Branch had raided Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty’s Juhu bungalow. The Bollywood actress was also questioned and she has denied her involvement in the company, claiming she was not aware of the exact content of the controversial HotShots app in question, which was used for distribution of adult content. She also mentioned that erotica is different from porn, for which her husband has been accused of, and that he is not involved in producing porn content.
After Raj Kundra’s custody was extended, his lawyer revealed that they will move the High Court for his bail. And according to the latest development, police sources have revealed that four of Raj’s employees have turned witnesses in the pornography racket case.
