Mumbai: The Crime Branch of Mumbai Police reportedly formed a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate the infamous pornography case in which Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty’s husband and business tycoon Raj Kundra is a prime accused, informed Mumbai Police on Friday.
An officer of the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) rank will lead the SIT team in the case.
The newly formed SIT will probe all the cases registered separately in the pornography case. The team will report to the top officers of the Crime Branch. Kundra was arrested by police on July 19 along with 11 other people on charges related to the alleged creation of pornographic films.
The Bombay High Court on Saturday dismissed an applications filed by the businessman Raj Kundra and Ryan Thorpe challenging Magistrate Court’s remand order and seeking immediate release in connection with the pornography case.
It is to be mentioned, earlier on August 5, the metropolitan magistrate court had rejected the bail pleas of Raj Kundra and his associate Ryan Thorpe in the pornography case.
