A Special Investigation Team (SIT) has been formed by the Mumbai Crime Branch
to probe the porn racket case involving Raj Kundra and several others. According to Mirror Now
, an officer of the ACP rank will be heading the case and the newly formed SIT will look into all the FIRs filed in the pornography case. Only July 19, Raj Kundra, who is married to Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, was arrested by Mumbai Police
for alleged production and distribution of pornographic content through a mobile app. Raj Kundra’s jail term was extended after his bail hearing was deferred till August 20.

Abhijeet Bomble, a director of one of Kundra’s firms, was arrested by the Mumbai police’s crime branch, said an official.
