Pornography case: Abhijit Bhomble, director of Raj Kundra's company, nabbed
The pornography racket case involving businessman Raj Kundra, Shilpa Shetty Kundra's husband, has a new development. One Abhijit Bhomble, who holds the position of "director" at one of his companies, was nabbed recently in response to a First Information Report (FIR) filed by a model in July against four people. The property cell of the Mumbai Police Crime Branch made the arrest, reports said.
According to news agency ANI, the model had filed a case against four people from Kundra's company. A TOI report suggests the complainant, who hails from Madhya Pradesh, had claimed in the FIR that Bhomble was involved in producing porn films for the app controlled by Kundra. Apparently, the director promised the actress a break in films and "forced her" to perform "bold scenes."

The report by ANI added that the other three people mentioned in the complaint are Gehana Vasisth, Ajay Srimant, and Prince Kashyap. Notably, Mumbai Sessions Court rejected the anticipatory bail application of Vasisth alias Vandana Tiwari yesterday, which was in connection with another FIR registered against her at the Malvani Police station. This case has now been transferred to the Mumbai Crime Branch.
The Malvani Police station case is the third one registered against Vasisth. Filed on July 29, the complaint also named three producers of Kundra's company. Separately, the model/actress was arrested in February 2021 in another pornography case for allegedly forcing women to expose for such movies. The 33-year-old has maintained innocence, even going nude in an Instagram live session to "prove" she wasn't guilty.
On the other hand, Sessions Court in Mumbai was supposed to hear Kundra's bail plea on August 10. But later, the court had stated the hearing would not take place as the concerned judge was not available on that day. Now the hearing will take place on August 20. Notably, the businessman was sent to judicial custody on July 27.
