If we go by the reports then Kundra has been accused of offering the bribe to the cops to defer arrest till now. As per the reports, an accused in a p*rn production case had alleged that in order to avoid the arrest the businessman tried to bribe the Crime Branch officers with around 25 lakhs.
A report published in Mid-Day says an absconding accused named Arvind Srivastava alias Yash Thakur, send an email to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) complaining about Raj Kundra in the same month. As per his complaint, Kundra paid a bribe of around 25 lakhs to Crime Branch officers to avoid getting arrested in the case.

Earlier, Poonam released an official statement that read, “At this moment my heart goes out to Shilpa Shetty & her kids. I can’t imagine what she must be going through. So, I refuse to use this opportunity to highlight my trauma. The only thing I’ll add is that I have filed a police complaint in 2019 against Raj Kundra and subsequently registered a case at the honourable high court of Bombay against him for fraud & theft. This matter is sub judice, hence I would prefer to limit my statements. Also, I have full faith in our police & the judicial process.”
