Ripu Sudan Balakishan Kundra alias Raj Kundra, the 45-year-old businessman and husband of actor Shilpa Shetty arrested for his involvement in the case of the pornographic video, has been given no preferential treatment within Arthur Road prison.
Prison sources said that Kundra is being treated like any other prisoner and kept in a general barrack with around 200 inmates. Kundra who was arrested by the Mumbai crime branch on July 19 was sent to judicial custody on July 27. “On July 27, Kundra was produced in court and sent to 14 days judicial custody. Before being sent to Arthur Road prison, he was taken to JJ hospital for a medical check. After getting a negative RT-PCR report, he was sent to prison. Kundra has received one shot of COVID-19 vaccination, and was medically fit,” said a Mumbai crime branch officer.
“Kundra is kept in barrack number 4 in circle number 6 of the jail. Each barrack has more than 200 inmates. The barrack, which originally has a capacity for 50 inmates, now houses around 200 inmates including Kundra.” “Kundra too gets the same breakfast which others get. A glass of milk and banana in the morning. Later, lunch at around 11:30 pm and dinner at 5 pm. The lunch and dinner mostly consist of chappatis, vegetable gravy, and rice. If anyone needs anything extra he can get it from the jail canteen,” said an official from Maharashtra prison.
