The security outfit also described Kundra as a “key conspirator” in a case involving the creation and publication of adult films via internet apps, adding that it had sufficient evidence against him.

“There was a case registered with the Crime Branch Mumbai in February 2021 about the creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some Apps,” the Mumbai police commissioner said in a statement.

Kundra, who has two children with Shetty, is not new to scandals.

Six years ago, he was banned for life from all cricket-related activities after an investigation into match-fixing during his stint as a co-owner of the Rajasthan Royals, a franchise in the hugely successful Indian Premier League (IPL).
