Raj Kundra, the husband of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, has been arrested by police in Mumbai, India, for allegedly creating and transmitting pornographic films online, six years after the businessman was barred from cricket-related activities due to match-fixing allegations.
Kundra, 45, was arrested late Monday by Mumbai Police, who described him as “the principal conspirator” in a case involving the fabrication and distribution of sexual videos using internet apps.
“We have enough proof in this case,” police said in a statement, adding that the investigation was still underway.
Kundra, who has two children with Shetty, the 2007 winner of the British reality show “Celebrity Big Brother,” is the latest celebrity to be arrested.
Kundra was banned from all cricket-related activities for life in 2015, following an enquiry into match-fixing while he and Shetty were co-owners of the Rajasthan Royals, an IPL franchise.
Although India has strict regulations against the publication and transmission of “obscene content,” it is permissible to watch pornography in secret.
According to Pornhub, India was the third greatest source of traffic in 2018, trailing only the United States and the United Kingdom.
