Pune: Kiran Gosavi who is the witness of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in the Aryan Khan Case has been detained by Pune Police. The cops have confirmed that he is being questioned in connection with a cheating case.
He was absconding ever since the police have issued a lookout circular against him. Recently, he had offered to surrender himself at a local police station in Lucknow. However, his request was reportedly rejected.
Gosavi who is also the witness in the NCB raid on the cruise ship off the Mumbai coast on October 2 has been in the headlines after his selfie with Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan went viral on social. The selfie was taken after Aryan’s arrest by the NCB.
He was wanted in the case that was registered on May 19, 2018, in Faraskhana police station of Pune. He has been accused of committing fraud by promising a person a job in Malaysia by taking money.
Recently, a man claiming to be Gosavi’s personal bodyguard made allegations of bribery against him.
Prabhakar Sail, who is another witness in the case, said he heard Gosavi having a telephonic conversation about pay-offs with one Sam D’Souza.
Sail claimed he heard Gosavi say they should ask for a ‘bomb Rs 25 crore’ and then settle at Rs 18 crore, of which Rs 8 crore is for the NCB’s zonal officer in charge of the investigation, Sameer Wankhede.
