The Magistrate Court in Mumbai has extended Raj Kundra’s police custody till Tuesday, July 27. At the hearing, Police appealed to the court to extend the custody of Kundra – who is being looked as the “key conspirators” in the case by the police- by seven more days.

Kundra was arrested by the Mumbai Crime Branch who was arrested by the police on Monday this week in a case relating to the creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some apps.

According to Times of India, at the hearing on Friday, Mumbai Police also told the court that they suspect that the money earned from the alleged pornographic movies was used in online betting and have asked for permission to investigate the transactions between Kundra’s account in Yes Bank and United Bank of Africa.
