On July 20, Mumbai police arrested Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty’s husband, businessman Raj Kundra, in connection with an alleged porn racket.

The Mumbai Crime Branch has directed State Bank Of India to seize two State Bank accounts of businessman and actor Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra at Kanpur, according to bank officials.

The SBI authorities noted that crores of rupees have been deposited in these two bank accounts.

Following the seizure of the bank accounts on Sunday, another matter involving Kundra surfaced. Sources told ANI that  Arvind Srivastava ran Raj Kundra’s production company, and the money was being transferred to Arvind Srivastava’s wife Harshita.

Arvind’s father NP Srivastava who lives in the Shyam Nagar, told ANI: “In the last two years, Arvind has not come home and he sends money from time to time in the name of household expenses."

The development comes a day after four employees of Raj Kundra testified against him.

Meanwhile, Kundra and his business associate, Ryan Tharp, will be taken to Killa Court on Tuesday after 12 noon as their custody ends tomorrow.
