Aryan Khan Case- Kiran Gosavi, Wanted In Fraud Case Detained In Pune
Kiran Gosavi, the controversial witness in the Aryan Khan case, has been detained in Pune who was wanted in a cheating case in 2018. Earlier, Mr Gosavi said that he wanted to surrender to the Uttar Pradesh police as he felt very threatened in Maharashtra. However, the Lucknow police refuted the claims. Kiran Gosavi is a private investigator who was present during the raid conducted by the Narcotics Control Bureau over a cruise ship from where Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan was arrested. Many leaders raised questions on why an independent witness of the agency was present during the raid, clicking selfies with the high profile accused. Prabhakar Sail, another witness in the case, alleged that he heard Mr Gosavi's telephonic conversation about payoffs and settle on INR 25 crore. However, Mr Gosavi, while denying all allegations, released a video statement and said: "Sail is lying. I just want to request that his CDR (call details record) should be released. My CDR report or chat should be issued, along with the CDR report of Sail and his brother, then everything will be clear. At least one minister or any leader of the opposition from Maharashtra should stand with me. At least they should request the Mumbai Police to do what I am asking," Meanwhile, NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede recently visited the NCB office in Delhi.
