A case of cheating has been registered against Shilpa Shetty and her husband Raj Kundra at Mumbai's Bandra Police Station. The complainant named Nitin Barai alleges that Shilpa and Raj cheated several times in the name of distributing the franchise of spa and gym from 2014 till now.
Nitin says that he had opened a gym and spa franchise of Shilpa and Raj's firm 'M/s SFL Private Company' in Koregaon, Pune. The accused made him an investment of Rs 1 crore 59 lakh 27 thousand and then made personal use of that money. When he asked for the money back, the accused started threatening him.
After Nitin's complaint, Bandra Police has started the investigation by registering a case against Shilpa Shetty, Raj Kundra, and other accused under sections 406, 409, 420, 506, 34, and 120 (B) of IPC. The police may soon interrogate the accused in this case. Police may contact Raj Kundra and Shilpa soon to know their side.
Ever since Raj Kundra was released from jail in the pornography case, he has not been seen anywhere. On November 1, he also deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts. Kundra, who was arrested in the pornography case, got bail from the Bombay High Court on 20 September after two months. On July 19, the police arrested 11 people including Raj Kundra, Ryan Thorpe in connection with this case. Raj is accused of doing business in porn films.
According to the Mumbai Crime Branch, Raj Kundra had invested 8 to 10 crores in the porn film industry. Raj and his brother living in Britain formed a company called Kenrin there. The porn videos were then shot in India and sent to Kenrin Company through We Transfer (File Transfer Service). This company was formed by Raj Kundra and got registered abroad so that they can avoid India's cyber law.
