A pissed Raj Kundra issues a statement after wife Shilpa Shetty’s name gets dragged in money laundering case
A few days back reports of businessman Raj Kundra being summoned by Enforcement Directorate (ED) in Iqbal Mirchi’s money laundering case had surfaced. News agency ANI had even reported that Raj will be questioned by ED on November 4 in connection with property deals related to underworld don Dawood Ibrahim’s close aide late Iqbal Mirchi.
Raj recently issued a statement as he feels his wife Shilpa Shetty‘s name is being unnecessarily dragged into the case just to grab eyeballs.
Raj released a statement on Thursday in which he expressed his disappointment over “the way “some” media channels have twisted the facts to make scandalous headlines(sic).”
In his statement, the businessman said, “I do not owe any explanations to anyone however I am disappointed with the way “some” media channels have twisted the facts to make scandalous headlines. I am more disappointed at the way my wife’s name is being dragged into this just for TRPs to soar.”

Raj also presented his side of the story in the ongoing case. “In 2011 I negotiated to sell a plot that I owned near the airport to RKW Developers whose director was Dheeraj Wadhawan. All my dealing and correspondence that time was with Dheeraj only. In 2013 I transferred my company Essential Hospitality that owned the plot to RKW Developers against full and final payment. No loans were taken in this company and it was completely debt-free when we sold the same to RKW,” read his statement.
He further added, “In March 2019 I was looking to make investments in the F&B sector. Ranjit Bindra approached me because he heard I was interested in this space with an offer to invest in his restaurant Bastian. I had been a regular patron at this popular restaurant and decided to invest in the same buying a 50% share stake along with management rights. I was called in by the Enforcement Directorate to provide information on the above two deals for which I have done the same and will continue to do so if need be. I have never had any dealings or know personally ANY underworld people and its upsetting to see such names attached with mine.”
