Evidence incriminating Raj Kundra recently came to light and led to his arrest by the police. No role of his wife and Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra has been found in the whole case. Some WhatsApp chats have been leaked which clearly act as evidence against Kundra. In the chats, the participants of a group called H ACCOUNTS are talking about their app 'Hotshots' being blocked and a backup plan to release another app in case this one fails. Other names like Poonam Pandey and Gehana Vasisth have also come up and the police is investigating the case. Further news will be received after the court hearing today.
