The night of July 19, 2021, had brought a storm in Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra's happy paradise after the Mumbai police had arrested Raj for his alleged involvement in creating and publishing porn movies. He was arrested along with 11 other people and was said to be the key conspirator in the case.
On July 23, 2021, the crime branch had raided Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra's bungalow in Juhu for further investigation. Raj was also taken to his home during the raid and the Police had also recorded Shilpa Shetty's statement. Now, after 13 days of Raj Kundra's arrest, Shilpa Shetty Kundra reacted on the same for the first time.
A few moments back, Shilpa Shetty took to her IG handle and shared an official statement on Raj Kundra's arrest. Reacting to the rumours and accusations, Shilpa wrote, "My statement. Yes! The past few days have been challenging, on every front. There have been a lot of rumours and accusations. A lot of unwarranted aspersions on me cast by the media and (not so) well wishers as well. A lot of trolling/questions posed… not only to me but also to my family. MY STAND… I HAVE NOT COMMENTED YET, and will continue to refrain from doing so on this case as it is subjudice, so please stop attributing false quotes on my behalf."
Refusing to explain herself to anyone, Shilpa requested people to respect her family's privacy for the sake of her children and continued, " Reiterating my philosophy of, as a celebrity “Never complain, never explain”. All I will say is, as it’s an on-going investigation, I have full faith in the Mumbai Police & the Indian judiciary. As a family, we are taking recourse to all our available legal remedies. But, till then I humbly request you - especially as a MOTHER - to respect our privacy for my children’s sake and request you to refrain from commenting on half-baked information without verifying the veracity of the same."
Shilpa concluded her long note by stating that she would never let anyone down and the family doesn't need a media trial, " I am a proud law-abiding Indian citizen and a hardworking professional for the last 29 years. People have put their faith in ME & I’ve never let anyone down. So, most importantly, I request you to respect my family’s and ‘my right’ to privacy in these times. We don’t deserve a media trial. Please let the law take its course. Satyamev Jayate! With Positivity and Gratitude, Shilpa Shetty Kundra."
It was in February 2021 when the racket publishing pornographic content with Raj Kundra's alleged involvement was busted. A woman had approached Mumbai Police with the allegations on Raj for luring men and women with the pretext of giving them work in web series and instead, forcing them to act in adult movies.
Raj Kundra was booked under sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292 and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays).
