Mumbai Crime Branch’s Property Cell had summoned Sherlyn Chopra to appear before them on July 27 to record her statement in connection to the pornography case involving Raj Kundra, who is currently in 14-day judicial custody.
The actress had applied to the Mumbai Sessions Court for anticipatory bail in the porn racket case, fearing arrest like co-accused Kundra. She claimed that she was the first one to share information with the Cyber Cell of the Mumbai Police in March 2021 about Kundra’s company Armsprime that led to his arrest.
She was granted anticipatory bail on Tuesday. The report adds Sherlyn alleged that Kundra “started kissing her even though she resisted”. She also told him about not wanting to mix business and pleasure as well as not being with a married man. To this, the businessman said that he was “stressed” most of the time and described his relationship with wife Shilpa Shetty as “complicated”.
The actress stated that she was “scared” and managed to get rid of Kundra by pushing him and “rushing into the washroom”. As per the report, Sherlyn had issued an FIR against Raj Kundra in April 2021 of sexual assault. He was charged under section 376 of Indian Penal Code r/w section 384, 415, 420, 504 and 506, 354 (a) (b) (d), 509, of Indian Penal Code, 67, 67 (A), of Information Technology Act 2008, sec 3 & 4 of Indecent Representation of Women Act 1986. Sherlyn Chopra had earlier claimed that she was one of the first few people to raise a red flag over the adult film racket.
