Pornography case: Raj Kundra's lawyer argues ‘vulgar’ content cannot be classified as ‘porn’ | Hindi Movie News - Bollywood - Times of India

Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty's husband and businessman Raj Kundra was recently arrested by Mumbai Police for allegedly making pornographic films and publishing them. Now, his lawyer Abad Ponda, while defending his client Raj Kundra made an argument in the court that the content published was rather 'vulgar' and not 'pornography'. While objecting to classify content as 'pornography' in a police case on pornographic films, he said, 'The IT Act sections can't be read with IPC sections, but here the police have done this. Section 67A of the IT Act talks about sexually explicit acts. Only the actual... intercourse can be considered porn. Rest all is just vulgar content.' He further added, 'Police is following what web series are doing these days - vulgar content. But that's not really classified as porn. Nothing in this remand shows that two people actually indulged in act of intercourse. If it's not actual intercourse, it's not classified as porn'. Further, he even went on to question the arrest of Raj Kundra as he said, 'Police custody should be an exception and not a norm. Arrest should be made only when the investigation cannot move further without the arrest. In this case, the accused was made to join the investigation once he was arrested. The arrest wasn't made as per law.' For the unversed, Raj Kundra has been booked under sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292 and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) besides relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act. He was arrested on July 19. Mumbai Police has said Raj Kundra appears to be the 'key conspirator' in the case that was filed in February and added that they have sufficient evidence against him. Following his arrest, Raj has been sent to judicial custody till July 23.
