For the unversed, in April this year, the crime branch filed the first charge sheet in the case against nine people. In the voluminous document, the police have said the probe conducted by the property cell of the crime branch has revealed that Kundra was the “main facilitator” in the porn films case. A lot of evidences against Kundra came to light after technical analysis, statements of witnesses and from documents confiscated from his office, it said.

The police said Kundra and Thorpe, in conspiracy with accused arrested earlier, took advantage of financially weak young women who were struggling in the film industry and made obscene movies with them. The pornographic videos were then uploaded on various websites as well as mobile applications, they said. These videos were sold through subscriptions and Kundra “illegally” earned millions from them, said the charge sheet.

Kundra and Thorpe were arrested by the Mumbai crime branch on July 19 and were sent to jail under judicial custody.
