Pune: KP Gosavi, NCB's independent witness in Mumbai drug bust case, has been arrested by Pune police in connection with a 2018 cheating case. 

Kiran Gosavi, who also worked as a private detective, has been detained, ANI quoted Amitabh Gupta, Pune Police Commissioner, as saying. In 2019, Pune City Police declared Gosavi as a wanted man. He was missing since then and was only spotted during cruise raid as NCB witness. On 14 Oct, Police issued a lookout circular against him.

KP Gosavi, who is an independent witness in the Aryan Khan case, had been absconding since his viral selfie with Shah Rukh Khan's son went viral. He also recently tried to surrender at a police station in Uttar Pradesh capital Lucknow. 

Several victims, who have been cheated by KP Gosavi, came forward to reveal about his alleged 'black deeds'. Earlier, Pune police had issued a lookout notice against him in a cheating case. 

During the NCB raids, Gosavi could be seen clicking selfies with Aryan Khan and helping him connect with someone over the phone. 

Prabhakar Sail, another NCB witness, had earlier levelled serious allegations of extortion and established a 'vasooli link' in connection with the Mumbai luxury cruise drug bust case. 

He also alleged that he overheard K P Gosavi saying that Rs 8 crore would have to be given to the Sameer Wankhede. The anti-narcotics agency NCB has rubbished all his allegations.

On Sunday, Sail claimed that Gosavi took Rs 50 lakh from an individual after the raid at the cruise on October 2. He said he had helped Gosavi during Mumbai cruise drugs case.

According to reports, Sail claimed that Gosavi had planned to demand Rs 25 cr from Shah Rukh Khan's manager Pooja Dadlani but would settle for Rs 25 cr. A part of the 'extortion' that is Rs 8 cr was to be given to Sameer Wankhede, Sail claimed in his affidavit.  

Before being arrested, Gosavi said Prabhakar Sail was lying and demanded that his CDR report must be released.
