The functioning of hotshots, a now-defunct streaming service, was linked to these residences
The detention of billionaire Raj Kundra, is not the closure of the suspected pornographic racket in Mumbai, as Mumbai police are said to have discovered a massive group including numerous minor production houses in the town.
The functioning of hotshots, a now-defunct streaming service, was linked to these residences. According to reports, Mumbai police discovered 70 films taken by Kundra's longtime personal assistant Umesh Kamat with the assistance of several production houses. In addition, the investigators discovered 90 films created specifically for the Hotshots software.
Raj Kundra is accused of creating pornographic films in India, which is prohibited over numerous sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act, and luring individuals to appear in pornographic films by offering them characters in web series.
Abad Ponda, Kundra's lawyer, claimed the app's material was filthy but not obscene. Several more Bollywood stars have made similar claims. Raj Kundra is being held in police custody until July 23, although he hasn't spoken anything throughout his interrogation. According to reports, Mumbai Police have written to different banks requesting information on Kundra's bank account.
Police discovered the server after seizing his home and business, and it will be submitted for forensic investigation to see whether the app's material was posted through the use of the server. In February, Mumbai Police started an investigation into the matter, which led to Raj Kundra's imprisonment.
Raj Kundra allegedly evaded detention since February by paying Crime Branch officials, according to a report. Raj Kundra has been leading this company for two years, however, his Hotshots application was licensed to a UK company to avoid Indian scrutiny.
ACCORDING TO POLICE, the UK business is held by Kundra's brother-in-law, and even though the official ownership was transferred, Kundra used to supervise the activities.
According to the officers, Raj Kundra also planned to shut down Hotshots and launch a new streaming app. Kundra had also intended to remove part of Hotshots' content.
