  • Raj has been charged under Sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292, and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), and relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act.

  • Over the last few days, Sagarika Sumona Suman has also spoken against Raj Kundra. In a video press conference, Sagarika revealed that Raj offered her a web series and on a video call asked her for a ‘nude audition’ that she denied. She further went on to claim that she has been receiving rape and death threats ever since she spoke against Raj.


  • On the other hand, wife Shilpa has remained tight-lipped on the matter and hasn’t made any public appearance either. Last night, Shilpa went on to share a passage from the book she is currently reading.
  • The highlighted paragraph reads as, “Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness. We look back in anger at the people who’ve hurt us, the frustrations we’ve felt, the bad luck we’ve endured. We look forward in fear at the possibility that we might lose our job, contract a disease, or suffer the death of a loved one.”
