In Pune, a new case of cheating has been filed against NCB Witness Kiran Gosavi

After a person came up with a complaint against Kiran Gosavi, one of the NCB witnesses in the cruise ship drug bust case involving Aryan Khan, the Pune Police have filed a new case of cheating against him, an official said on Sunday. On Saturday night, he added, a new case was filed at the Wanawadi police station in Maharashtra.

On Thursday, Faraskhana police in Maharashtra arrested Gosavi in a 2018 case for allegedly defrauding two people by offering them jobs overseas, and he was held in police detention until November 5.

On Friday, three people filed a complaint with the Lashkar police station, stating that he defrauded them of Rs 4 lakh by promising to give them with jobs in Malaysia in 2020. Following a complaint by a 45-year-old man from the Hadapsar area here on Saturday night, another case was filed against Gosavi under IPC sections 420 (cheating) and 409 (criminal breach of trust) and relevant provisions of the Arms Act, according to Wanawadi police station senior inspector Deepak Lagad. According to police, the latest complainant accused Gosavi of defrauding him of Rs 1.45 lakh by promising him a job in Malaysia.

They claimed that after the complainant was denied the job, he approached Gosavi, who reportedly threatened him with a gun. On October 2, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) raided a cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai, arresting Bollywood celebrity Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan and others on suspicion of narcotics possession. After the raid, his selfie and a video with Aryan Khan went viral.

Another witness in the drugs case, Prabhakar Sail, recently told the media that he heared Gosavi saying one Sam D'Souza on the phone about a demand of Rs 25 crore and "to settle at Rs 18 crore as they have to give Rs 8 crore to Sameer Wankhede" after Aryan Khan was brought to the NCB office following the October 2 raid on the cruise ship.
