A video of Raj Kundra saying he is ‘strictly against bribery’ surfaces amid allegations of paying police Rs 25 lakh to evade arrest – Times of India

Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra has been remanded in police custody till July 27. He was arrested on July 19 for allegedly being involved in the production and streaming of pornographic content.

The businessman was also accused of offering kickbacks to the police in an attempt to evade arrest. ANI quoted an official of the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) as saying that the agency has found four emails alleging that Shilpa Shetty’s husband Raj Kundra bribed Mumbai Police officials with ₹25 lakh to evade arrest.

Amidst all this, a video from earlier this year has resurfaced on the internet where Raj is seen talking about being strictly against bribery. The businessman was talking about the difference between doing business in India and England.

Check out the video here:

In the video, he said, “I was born and brought up in England. For me, the business ventures in England were far more easier. Everything was done by the book, the protocols were far more easy to follow. I made a lot of money. It took a lot of time but when I started making money, it really sort of worked well. Things fell into place. For me, it was easy to have my board meetings, my various business conference calls… I could literally run my business off a mobile phone today. It’s the best piece of equipment and it’s God’s gift if you use it properly.”

Elaborating further, he added, “When I moved to India, with all due respect, in the last 10 years I have been here, I have seen my biggest failures and it only happened because of lack of understanding. To make things work and happen, you have to know people. I don’t like this whole thing of greasing palms. For me, I am very strictly against it. So, the minute somebody asks me something, I step back and say, ‘Sorry, it’s just not happening.”

“It has taken me longer because, as they say, horses for courses, I have not been the horse for this course. But it has taken seven-eight years to understand and to play the game, and get used to the game over here, and now, things are falling into place,” he concluded.
