Mumbai Sessions Court Rejects Gehana Vasisth’s Anticipatory Bail Plea
No bail as of now for Gehana Vasisth, who was arrested in connection with Raj Kundra’s adult film making case.
A few months ago, Mumbai police arrested Gehana Vasisth for her alleged involvement in shooting and uploading adult content on mobile applications. However, she was later granted bail. A few weeks ago, Shilpa Shetty's husband, Raj Kundra, was arrested for making pornographic films. Vasisth's name started coming up in connection with Kundra's case, and she was summoned by Mumbai Crime Branch's property cell.
Recently, Gehana Vasisth had applied for anticipatory bail. She was arrested after an FIR was registered against her recently at the Malvani police station. However, a session court in Mumbai rejected her bail application. In her claims, Gehana mentioned that Mumbai Police allegedly targetted her as she exposed them for demanding bribe and supporting Raj Kundra.
About Gehana Vasisth's bail application getting rejected, ANI tweeted, "A Mumbai sessions court rejects anticipatory bail application of Gehna Vasisth, in connection with the FIR registered against her in Malvani police station, now transferred to Mumbai Crime Branch."
Sunil Kumar, Gehana's advocate, told the high court, "Gehana Vasisth had exposed Mumbai Police when she spoke about how policemen who came to arrest her had demanded her to pay a bribe of Rs 15 lakh. And second is that she had supported Raj Kundra which is why this case is filed. They are targeting Vasisth for being a public celebrity."
Meanwhile, after Raj Kundra's arrest, Gehana Vasisth had said in a statement, "First of all there’s no censorship on digital platforms, whatever people want, they’re making. But whatever videos that we’ve made for the app, in no way can you call it porn. We all know what porn is, but we were not doing porn. One needs to watch these videos first and then call them porn. These are the same category of content which other big OTT platforms make. But when we don’t target them, why target me, why target Raj Kundra?"
