Days after reported “attempt” to surrender at Lucknow, Kiran Gosavi, one of the independent witnesses of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in the cruise ship drugs seizure case, has been arrested by the Pune Police, said Commissioner Amitabh Gupta. “Gosavi has been arrested in a 2018 cheating case. A charge-sheet was filed in the case in 2019. If we get more complaints against him, we will register fresh offence against him,” Gupta said.
Earlier, the Pune Police had issued a lookout circular against Gosavi in connection with a 2018 cheating case. A lookout circular is a notice that prevents a person from leaving the country. Gosavi is one of the nine independent witnesses in the cruise ship raid and alleged recovery of drugs, in which Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was arrested earlier this month. According to the police, Gosavi was booked for allegedly duping a Pune-based man on the pretext of offering a job in Malaysia.
Chinmay Deshmukh, who was allegedly cheated to the tune of Rs 3.09 lakh by Gosavi, had registered the complaint against him. The complaint said that Deshmukh had contacted Gosavi, who had put up an advertisement on social media about some vacancy in hotel industry in Malaysia. While promising a job in Malaysia, Gosavi took Rs 3.09 lakh from him in instalments. However, he neither offered any job to him nor paid his money back, according to the complaint.
The complaint against Gosavi was registered in 2018 under various IPC sections, including 420 (cheating), and relevant sections of the Information Technology Act.
