Media consultant arrested on Sana Khan’s complaint


There has been some new development in the controversy surrounding actress Sana Khan. A week ago the actress, her boyfriend and a servant were arrested on assault and molestation charges filed by media consultant Poonam Khanna. But now Poonam herself has been arrested on charges of cheating that Sana Khan filed against her.

Police arrested her from a posh hotel in Mumbai and after recording her statement, placed her into custody. The complaint was lodged by Sana Khan at Oshiwara police station. Senior officer Subhash Wele said in his statement, "Poonam Khanna was picked up from a posh hotel in suburbs and her statement was recorded at length before she was placed under arrest. Poonam would be produced before a court tomorrow."

She is facing charges of cheating, threatening and criminal breach of trust. According to police, few months back the actress gave media consultant Poonam Rs. 9 lakh becuse she promised Sana to get two shanties in a slum area which has been marked for redevelopment and also a flat in Goregaon area under a Govt. scheme. But Poonam did not keep her promise and when Sana asked her to return the money she threatened to ruin her career.

A week earlier, Sana Khan, her boy friend Ismail and the servant Ramu Kanojia all three were arrested after Poonam Khanna had lodged a complaint against the trio for allegedly assaulting and threatening her. Poonam had said that Sana accused her of leaking some information about her in the media which resulted in an article being published against Sana.

As per police sources, "The incident took place outside a hospital in Andheri. The victim had gone to the hospital for check-up. Ramu approached her and dragged her outside the hospital where Sana and Ismail misbehaved with her and threatened her. She claimed she had to undergo a treatment at the hospital due to health problems and hence she could not register the complaint immediately."

Sana Khan has been seen in the Salman Khan film ‘Jai Ho’ and also participated in ‘Bigg Boss’. This is not the first time she or her boyfriend Ismail Khan has had trouble with the law. Apparently Ismail Khan also attacked actor Sahil Khan at a gym and accused him of spreading wrong information about the couple. Sahil told the media, "On Oct 22nd, I was gymming when Ismail attacked me. I didn't know how to react because I didn't know why he started hitting me. He started saying that you are jealous of Sana and you are the one who has given wrong stories about her to the press." Police is investigating the matter based on Sahil’s complaint.
