The bail application also said that in the entire supplementary charge sheet there is not a single allegation against the present applicant (Kundra) to indicate that he was actively involved in the shooting of any video. Rather it is at the discretion of the artist whether to upload the content to the App or not. The application said that the contents of the complaint prima facie do not disclose any offense against Kundra. The application claimed that Kundra was wrongly implicated in the case. His name was not there in the FIR but the respondent (police) forcibly dragged his name in the case. The petition said that the reason for this can only be given by the agency but they are being made a ‘scapegoat’. It said that the investigation clearly shows that Kundra is not even remotely involved in any offense of making “objectionable material”. The court will hear Kundra’s bail application on Monday.
