Two FIRs have been registered at Hazratganj and Vibhuti Khand police stations in Lucknow and the police has now intensified the investigation in both the cases.

According to police officials, Shilpa runs a fitness chain named Iosis Wellness Centre. The chairman of this company is Shilpa, while her mother Sunanda is the director.

Sanjeev Suman said that the matter is high-profile and hence the police are closely investigating all the points.

The case comes amid a scandal involving Shilpa's husband Raj Kundra, who was arrested over charges of operating an app with pornographic material.
