Actor Shilpa Shetty Kundra, who is a doting mother to son Viaan and daughter Samisha, feels parents should give freedom to children to mould their personalities in whatever way they feel most comfortable.

Pornography case: Court rejects anticipatory bail application of Gehana Vasisth

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]: A Mumbai sessions court on Thursday rejected the anticipatory bail application of Gehana Vasisth alias Vandana Tiwari, in connection with the FIR registered against the actor and model at the Malvani police station, now transferred to Mumbai Crime Branch.

During the argument of the anticipatory bail application on August 7, Mumbai Police had opposed Vasisth’s anticipatory bail application and told the court that her custody is important for the investigation and identification of other wanted accused in the case, as per the victim’s statement.
Further, the police told the court that Vasisth was a habitual offender, and already has two cases of a similar nature registered against her. This case is the third case against Vasisth, the police informed.

The Investigating Officer (IO) also told the court that the victim in her statement told the police that she was taken to shooting locations of web series in Malvani and Lonavala and was forced to go nude for the shoot.

“At the time of the shooting, she was threatened that if she doesn’t work for them they will make the clip of her go viral. The victim actress in the case was only 18 and half years of age at the time of the offence,” the IO said.

The police also raised objections to Gehana Vasisth’s description as an actress. According to the police, she is not an actress but is a director of such videos, as per the statements of the victim and other witnesses.

“She knows names and addresses of other crew members, so custodial interrogation is needed and that is why her anticipatory bail application should be rejected,” the police said.

On August 3, a Mumbai sessions court refused to grant interim protection from arrest to actor Gehana Vasisth in connection with pornography racket case.

A case was registered at Malvani Police Station on July 29 against Vasisth and three producers of the company of businessman and actor Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra who was handed over to the Property Cell of Mumbai Police Crime Branch.

Gehana Vashisht alias Vandana Tiwari was arrested in February 2021 in another pornography case. She got bail after four months.

Pornography case: Mumbai court rejects Raj Kundra’s bail plea

                

Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India]: The metropolitan magistrate court on Wednesday rejected the bail plea of actor Shilpa Shetty’s husband and businessman Raj Kundra and his associate Ryan Thorpe in the pornography case, stating that release of the accused will ‘hamper the investigation’ and the alleged offence is ‘detrimental to the health of the society’.

The court in its order has said, “One of the considerations for refusing or granting the bail is the nature of offence and gravity of the offence. The effect of the alleged offence is having nexus with the public at large. The alleged offence is also detrimental to the health of our society.”
“In such circumstances, societal interest in the prosecution of a crime that has a wider social dimension cannot be overlooked. At present investigation is in progress. In such circumstances, at this stage release of the accused will definitely hamper the investigation. So considering the facts and circumstances, both the bail applications are rejected,” said the court.

Court also considered the prosecution’s argument that the accused have deleted the evidence.

Strongly objecting to the bail plea of the accused, the court stated that the investigation is still going on and the offence is of serious nature, adding that if the accused are released on bail, then they will abscond and the possibility of tampering with the evidence cannot be ruled out.

On August 2, the Bombay High Court reserved its order on petitions filed by businessman Raj Kundra and his associate Ryan Thorpe challenging their arrest in a case in connection with the pornography racket case.

“There was a PowerPoint presentation (PPT) on Kundra’s laptop with details of Hotshots app. The PPT has financial projections, marketing strategies and what the app is all about,” police told the court.

Police added that a film script with sexual content was also found on Kundra’s personal laptop.

“Kundra has deleted his i-cloud contents,” police said adding they “cannot be mute spectators of a potential crime if the accused does not co-operate and tries to destroy evidence.”

On July 27, a court in Mumbai sent actor Shilpa Shetty’s husband and businessman Raj Kundra along with his associate Ryan Thorpe to judicial custody for 14 days.
