- After the arrest of Shilpa Setty’s husband Raj Kundra, new stories keep coming to the fore every day.
- Raj’s name surfaced from a WhatsApp chat between Yash Thakur and Umesh Kamat.
- In the case of Vashisht Raj Kundra, the jewel has a very important link.
According to the Mumbai Crime Branch, Canrin is the company from where the pornographic videos were uploaded. The video was sent from Mumbai-based Raj Kundra’s Viaan Industries to London. Shilpa Shetty was also a director of Vienna Industries, but she resigned from the post last year. On Friday, when the crime branch questioned Shilpa in Kundra’s presence for over six hours at her Juhu home, it also asked why she resigned as the company’s director. The crime branch is also probing Shilpa’s bank account.
Raj Kundra was named after Umesh Kamat, the managing director of the same company, who was arrested in February. Before the arrest of Umesh, the crime branch had arrested actress Gehana Vashistha. This is where the whole matter started to unravel. Jewel is an important link in Raj Kundra’s case. After the arrest, Yash Thakur, the wanted accused in the case, sent several messages to Umesh Kamat, saying that if he doesn’t oust Gehna in any way, he will open the door for all of us. This chat has now leaked. In a chat on February 7, 2021, Yash Thakur told Umesh, “The jewelery has been arrested. I need Rs 8 lakh to take it out.” Umesh says how do we withdraw money from the bank? In the same chat, Yash sends Umesh the news link regarding Gehna’s arrest. Umesh says, “I think I should go to Shimla for a month.” I will go there and shoot.
Before Umesh Kamat left for Shimla, he was arrested by the Mumbai Crime Branch. After the arrest, the police got enough evidence against Raj Kundra from Umesh’s phone. Yash Thakur had sent four emails to the Anti-Corruption Bureau alleging that Raj Kundra had given Rs 25 lakh to an officer of the Mumbai Crime Branch. Despite being named in February, he was not arrested. Mumbai Police has denied the allegations.
