Kiran Goswami cited a self-styled detective who took a viral selfie with Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan after being detained by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCP) on October 2 as an “independent witness”. The NCP is wanted in the 2018 fraud case registered with the Pune City Police.
Pune Police Commissioner Amitabh Gupta has confirmed that Goswami is wanted in connection with a fraud case.
NCP spokesperson Nawab Malik on Wednesday accused the BJP of having links with those detained by the NCP after Gosavi and Manish Panushali attacked a ship near Mumbai. Malik accused Goshawi, who claims to be a Malaysian detective, of facing several criminal cases and having close links with some NCB officials.

The NCB called the allegations “unfounded and impartial” and said Kosavi and Banushali were among 10 “independent witnesses” during the shipwreck.
However, Goswami was convicted in at least four fraud cases, including one at the Andheri police station in Mumbai in 2007, one at the Thane Kapoor police station in 2015 and 2016, and one at the Faraskana police station in Pune in 2018.
Chinmay Deshmukh, a resident of Kasba Beth, filed the first information report at the Faraskana Police Station on May 29, 2018.
According to the FIR, Kozavi posted an advertisement on hotel management jobs on social media and Deshmukh contacted him. Goswami had promised to give a job to Deshmukh in Malaysia and then between November 2017 and March 2018 cited Rs. 3.09 lakh to be transferred to a bank account.
However, Kosavi did not offer the job to Deshmukh or refund the money. Based on Deshmukh’s complaint, the police registered Kozavi in the case under sections 419 and 420 of the Indian Penal Code and sections of the Information Technology Act.
