Pune police arrested Kiran Gosavi, the Narcotics Control Bureau (BNC) independent witness in the Mumbai drug case that led to the arrest of Bollywood superstar’s son, Shah Rukh Khan, Aryan Khan .
Police say Gosavi was being questioned in a 2018 cheating case. Gosavi, who was on the run after Pune police issued a surveillance circular against him in a fraud case in 2018, claimed his life was in danger in Maharashtra.
Gosavi was seen in a selfie with Aryan Khan after BCN raids leading to Aryan Khan’s arrest earlier this month. Speaking to a media outlet, KP Gosavi claimed that Shah Rukh’s son asked him to call his parents.
KP Gosavi claims he did not previously know NCB Area Manager Sameer Wankhede and had only seen him on TV.
Previously, according to police, Gosavi was convicted of allegedly duping a Pune-based man under the pretext of offering a job in Malaysia. Chinmay Deshmukh, who was allegedly deceived to the tune of Rs 3.09 lakh by Gosavi, had registered the complaint against him.
Gosavi collectively took Rs 3.09 lakh from Deshmukh in installments while promising a job in Malaysia. However, he did not offer her a job or refund her money, an official from the Faraskhana police station said.
The complaint was registered in 2018 under various articles of the IPC, including 420 (cheating) and relevant articles of the Information Technology Act.
