Sahil Khan absconding after Ayesha Shroff files fresh FIR
Bandra police is said to be hot on the heels of former actor Sahil Khan who allegedly sent threat messages to producer Ayesha Shroff over a financial dispute. He is said to be absconding after the latter filed a fresh complaint against him.
The duo, in 2009, had launched a film production house and a cyber security firm in partnership but later parted ways. Ayesha had registered a police complaint against him for allegedly swindling R5 crore. Sahil then applied for an anticipatory bail, claiming that he was being made to pay for everything that he had accepted as gifts from Ayesha — expensive holidays to swanky cars.
On Monday, Ayesha responded to the "affair" claims by filing another FIR under Sections 506 and 509 of the IPC but when the cops proceeded to arrest Sahil, he had reportedly vanished. A source says: "When the cops went to arrest Sahil, his sister said he was in Pune and will present himself at the police station on Tuesday morning but he didn't."
Ramchandra Dhavale, senior inspector at the Bandra police station, confirms the news, saying, "We had gone to arrest Sahil Khan but he is absconding."
Sahil and his lawyer told us that he has been granted bail by Bandra court but when we asked him for a copy of it, he refused to share it with us. Bandra police, however, maintain that he has not secured bail.
"He hasn't surrendered before us. We are now trying to trace him," says a senior cop.
