Mumbai: The investigation into the murder of Navraj Kwatra, the 65-year-old son of late Punjabi writer Amrita Pritam, took an unexpected turn after the police recovered pornographic CDs from his flat.

As per reports, some videos and photographs recovered feature upcoming actors and models. Photos of several bar girls were also found.

Kwatra, a photographer, stayed alone at his ground floor flat in LIC Colony in Borivali. He was strangled to death by two unidentified assailants last Friday. His wife lives in Delhi.

What adds to the mystery of Kwatra’s dealings is that CCTVs were installed in the flat’s bedroom and bathroom, besides the recovery of condoms (mostly female), Viagra pills and sex toys.

The investigators suspect that he was active in porn industry. Kwatra portrayed himself as a model coordinator, but may have been luring Bollywood aspirants into porn industry, reports said.

Police suspect either personal enmity or revenge and are checking the phone records of Kwatra.

The police are questioning the models and actors who featured in pictures and videos recovered from Kwatra’s flat. Some of them have told the police that the deceased used to pay them for featuring in video albums and small roles.

His murder may be a case of a deal gone wrong, the police suspect.

Importantly, another report claimed that some of the girls featured in videos have told the police that Kwatra was a decent man and never indulged in indecent activities.

Navraj Kwatra’s neighbours saw two young men visit him around 12.30 pm on Friday. Soon there was piercing shriek but people weren`t sure where it came from. Some people rushed to the upper floors of the building, but soon learnt that the screams were coming from Kwatra`s studio on the ground floor. Then after, they rushed downstairs and rang his doorbell but nobody answered.

Some residents then decided to look in from a rear window. As they moved to the rear part of the building, the two assailants got the chance to step out of the main entrance. A woman from the upper floor raised an alarm when she caught them leaving but nobody pursued the duo.

On entering Kwatra`s studio, the residents found him lying gagged and bound, and summoned the police. A gift-wrapped parcel was found lying in the studio, indicating that the assailants might have used it to enter the house.
