Businessman Raj Kundra is in police custody till July 23 for making pornographic films and streaming from the app. According to the Mumbai Police, the conversation on WhatsApp has revealed that Kundra was also involved in financial transactions in this case. Taking advantage of the helpless circumstances of the model, actress, he forced her to work in porn films.
A website spoke to senior advocate Ujjwal Nikam in this matter. During this, an attempt was made to know whether legal action is possible against Raj Kundra. Here are the highlights of the conversation with him –
The allegations against Raj Kundra are serious, if proved, what can be the punishment for him?
Ujwal:- It is difficult to say anything about the punishment at this time. That is because the matter is still at the stage of an investigation. There will be documentary evidence next. Based on that, what claims are made by the Investigating Agency, will all depend on him. There is no direct evidence against Raj, but his name is in the chain of evidence and if he is connected properly, then there can be solid proof against him.
Raj Kundra’s talk only on WhatsApp app chat, how much solid evidence can there be against him?
Ujwal:- The way those chats are done from the owner’s mobile, makes an impression that they are also involved. If Honor can show that he has not done those chats. They are all fabricated, so it can be done. However, he has to prove it.
What is the rule in India, if you make porn, what can be the punishment for you?
Ujjwal: – Not only making porn, inviting someone to do so is also an offense in itself. It is banned in India.
In which category will the bold and erotic content that comes on the ‘Ullu’ or ‘Alt Balaji’ app come under? For example a series like ‘Gandii Baat’?
Ujwal: – By law, all of them also come under the purview of the offense. It is up to the police. ‘Gandi Baat’ comes under the purview of obscenity. However, in the Raj Kundra case, the models have also made allegations, then the police have taken cognizance.
If someone does not accuse anyone and keeps making erotic content, then in that case also the police can take action against the respective makers?
Ujwal:- Absolutely can take. The police can take suo motu cognizance. The police have the right.
