Kistwar, July 7: A local court here granted four days transit remand of a forest contractor turned politician, Parvez Ahmed Tak, to Crime Branch of Mumbai police, which is probing the kidnapping of Bollywood starlet Laila Khan and her family.
Official sources said that the accused, Parvez Ahmad of Nali Bonjwah – who was arrested by the police in a case of alleged forgery, cheating and criminal conspiracy, was produced before JMIC (Munsiff) Kishtwar on Saturday.
A four member team of Crime Branch Mumbai also filed an application before the court seeking transit remand of the accused. It claimed that the accused was required to be questioned in an alleged case of kidnapping of Bollywood starlet.
In the application filed by Sanjay More, Assistant Police Inspector Crime Branch Mumbai, the court was informed that the accused is wanted in a case under FIR 218/12 u/s 363/364-A IPC and was required to be questioned to solve the mystery behind sudden disappearance of actress Laila Khan and Reshma Patel.
Mumbai police termed the case as of “national importance” and also produced a request letter of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate 37 court Mumbai.
The court after going through the record granted four days transit remand of the accused to Mumbai police.
Meanwhile, report from Mumbai suggest that the Crime Branch was not ready to believe Tak, who had reportedly told the interrogators that Laila and others were shot dead in Maharashtra last year.
"The last location of four people , Laila's mother Shelina (50), twin siblings Zara and Imran, and one another relative was Igatpuri. But we suspect that it is not Igatpuri in Laila's case," a senior official on the condition of anonymity told a wire service.
The kidnappers, apparently, took Laila and her elder sister Hazmina somewhere else, he said. "It is also possible that Laila and her sister might not have gone to Igatpuri at all."
"We should wait as Tak is constantly changing his statement," said the official.
The starlet and her family went missing from here in February last year. A case of kidnapping was registered at the Oshiwara police station on Thursday, on a complaint of her father Nadir Patel.
According to the complaint, Tak and his accomplice Asif kidnapped Laila and others. Asif Shaikh was arrested on Thursday.
