The crime branch’s unit 9 on Tuesday filed the 1,500-pages-long chargesheet before the 37th metropolitan court under various charges of rape, cheating, forgery, breach of trust and issuing threats. Besides Khan, the police have arrested Kishore Nathani who allegedly helped Khan in making a forged deed of sale of flats and other property documents to cheat the actress to the tune of Rs15.4 crore. Police checked records of the real estate firm and found it had had no deals at all. Last month, police also arrested Kazi Kari Gausal from Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh for having forged a nikahnama.
The chargesheet also mention statements of various witnesses who have stated that Khan and Nathani had a habit of spending lavishly on their lifestyle. “The accused spent money on dance bars, went abroad (and) spent money on gambling and casino,” it stated. Investigators also found Khan had donated huge amounts to various religious places in many states.
Police said out of Rs15.4 crore, they were able to recover only Rs49 lakh in cash and two cars worth Rs87 lakh from Khan’s possession. Earlier this year, the actress, to whom Khan was introduced at a Bollywood show in the city in 2011, had lodged a complaint with the Juhu police that he had taken money from her several times, claiming he needed to pay taxes on her properties in Alibaug and Nepean Sea Road, and duped her of Rs15.4 crore. The actress also alleged that Khan under pretext of marrying her raped her on several occasions.
