SC grants Pre-arrest Bail to Raj Kundra, Sherlyn, Poonam in Porn Case

Businessman Raj Kundra, along with Sherlyn Chopra and Poonam Pandey were granted pre-arrest bail by the SC in the pornography case. The case involves an FIR against them for allegedly distributing pornographic videos. 

A bench of Justices K M Joseph and B V Nagarathna also directed all the accused to cooperate in the investigation. “Having heard the counsel for the parties, we are of the view that the petitioners may be granted anticipatory bail,” the bench said.

At the hearing today, Kundra’s lawyers claimed that he was in no way connected to content creation, publication, or transmission of alleged illegal videos even as the actors, who were named as co-accused, had given full consent to shoot the videos.

Kundra had been booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code, Indecent Representation of Women (Prevention) Act, and Information Technology Act for allegedly distributing/ transmitting sexually explicit videos. The FIR named Chopra and Pandey as co-accused.
