What is going on with Raj Kundra pornography scandal?
Meanwhile, in the Raj Kundra pornography scandal, the Bombay High Court stayed on Raj Kundra’s arrest by rejecting pleas that challenged remand orders passed by the Mumbai magistrate court. Along with Kundra, his business associate Ryan Thorpe too is remanded in the matter.
The High Court in the matter ruled-
“It would lead to a conclusion that the arrest of the petitioners and remand to custody by the metropolitan magistrate dated July 20 is within conformity of the provisions of law. The impugned order of the magistrate does not suffer any error which would require any interference by this court.”
Raj Kundra is still in jail and so is his business associate.
