Mumbai: Raj Kundra, husband of Bollywood actor Shilpa Shetty, will soon face money laundering and Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) cases against him as Enforcement Directorate (ED) is likely to register cases under these Acts against him.

ED, mandated to probe financial frauds related cases, may file a case against Kundra under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and FEMA by the end of this month anytime after July 26.

ED will take the First Information Report (FIR) copy from Mumbai Police before starting its probe after filing a case.

The ED may issue a summon against Kundra under PMLA and FEMA before beginning questioning with him at its Mumbai office.

Kundra, 45, was arrested by Mumbai Police on July 19 along with 11 other people on charges related to alleged creation of pornographic films.

As the crime branch of the Mumbai Police has claimed before the Mumbai Court that Kundra was making financial gains through this illegal business by taking subscription fees from the users of these apps, ED will investigate these charges after filing case against him under PMLA.

In its probe, ED will find out details about the claims made by Mumbai Police over Kundra’s involvement in the financial dealings of the app and its contents based on inputs about several WhatsApp chats.

The director of Kundra’s company Viaan Industries may also be quizzed by the ED in its investigation.

Questioning with Shilpa Shetty cannot be ruled out during ED enquiry as she was learnt to be the director of Kundra’s firm till last year, however, the Mumbai Police has reportedly given her clean chit as they could not establish her involvement in the alleged porn racket.
