Senior counsel Satish Maneshinde who is representing Ayran Khan and spoke on behalf of him said “I was arrested and picked up at the gate.
“I had no complaint to the officers. As far as this case is concerned, on the first day, I readily agreed to one more day of remand, thinking there will be some development. Apart from some more arrests, nothing more has happened.
“As far as my interrogation that has taken place, it was connected to my stay abroad. Nothing else has been questioned.
“If the arrested are picked up on my statement, any senior officer connected with my investigation would ascertain that it is the same person or that I have any association, but nothing has happened.
“Yesterday, when they arrested Kumar, they should have confronted whether Merchant and Khan were related or not. They did not. The question of confronting should not be the only ground.
“One more development is, the cruise organisers have been detained. They have arrested a foreign national with whom I have no connection so far.”
According to CNN reports, the spokesperson for Shahrukh Khan, did not respond to the request for comments.
