What is the whole matter
The police have been investigating the case of making and uploading pornographic videos since February. This is the same case in which Gandi Baat actress Gehana Vashistha was arrested earlier and had to stay in jail for 5 months. However, Jewel is out on bail. According to the ETimes report, Raj Kundra's name in this case cropped up when the name of a UK-based production company came up during the investigation by the property sale. The police had arrested an executive of this company, Umesh Kamat.
Umesh was an ex-worker of Raj Kundra. It is alleged that Umesh had uploaded at least eight videos on various social media apps, which were shot by Gehana Vashistha. Police suspect that Raj Kundra has stake in this company. Mumbai Police Commissioner Hemant Nagrale has said that Raj Kundra seems to be the main conspirator in this case.
