Sherlyn Chopra must be quite relieved. The Supreme Court on Friday granted her protection from arrest in the Raj Kundra porn racket case. A bench comprising Justices Vineet Saran and Aniruddha Bose issued notice to the Maharashtra government on Chopra’s plea and granted stay on her arrest, similar to earlier orders passed granting protection to Shilpa Shetty‘s husband Raj Kundra and actress Poonam Pandey in the same FIR. Advocate Sunil Fernandes represented Chopra in the top court. It can be recalled that on January 18, the Supreme Court had granted protection from arrest to Poonam Pandey in the porn films racket case, in which Raj Kundra is one of the main accused.

On December 15, the Supreme Court granted Kundra four weeks protection from arrest in one of the cases related to the porn film racket. In November 2021, the Bombay High Court had declined to entertain the anticipatory bail application filed by Kundra in connection with an FIR registered against him by the Mumbai Police in the porn film racket case. Kundra approached the top court after the high court refused relief.

Kundra, first sought anticipatory bail from the session court, which refused to grant him any relief. Thereafter, he moved the Bombay High Court claiming that he was allegedly framed. The cyber cell of the Mumbai Police filed a case against Kundra under sections of the Indian Penal Code, Indecent Representation of Women (Prevention) Act, and Information Technology Act for allegedly distributing sexually explicit videos.

Kundra claimed he was not connected to content creation, publication or transmission of alleged illegal videos. He was arrested by Mumbai Police, in July this year, in another case where he was accused of distributing porn films through an app. In September, Kundra was granted bail.
