Raj Kundra: Key points from today’s Bombay High Court bail plea hearing

Raj Kundra's hearing at the Bombay High Court is underway and here are some live updates:

Raj Kundra's lawyer has claimed that the content is vulgar but cannot be classified as porn. Making his argument in court, Raj Kundra’s lawyer said that it would be incorrect to classify the content as pornography. He also objected to the application of Section 67A of the Information Technology Act on sending obscene content in electronic form along with other sections with respect to pornography as these laws consider "actual intercourse" as porn and the rest everything is termed as vulgar content and that it cannot be classified as porn.

Now Raj Kundra has been booked under sections 420 (cheating), 34 (common intention), 292, and 293 (related to obscene and indecent advertisements and displays) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) besides relevant sections of the IT Act and the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act. The quantum of punishment is 5 years under section 67A and even after conviction if the act is repeated then it is 7 years.
