KP Gosavi Is A Cheat, I Helped SRK’s Manager To Get Money Back: Sam D’Souza

Mumbai : In an media interview with India Today Sam D’Souza stated that when he realized that KP Gosavi is a ‘cheat’ he helped actor Shah Rukh Khan’s manager Pooja Dadlani to get back the money which was allegedly taken by KP Gosavi from her on October 3.

Earlier, Sam D’Souza, a business consultant who allegedly ‘brokered a deal’ trying to help actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan in the drugs-on-cruise case, had said that panch witnesses KP Gosavi and Prabhakar Sail took Rs 50 lakh from Pooja Dadlani. He helped KP Gosavi get in touch with Pooja Dadlani in order to help Aryan Khan, from whom no drugs were recovered during the NCB’s raid, he said.

Sam D’Souza said that Prabhakar Sail, KP Gosavi and Sunil Patil were involved in the alleged extortion. He said that, initially, he knew that a meeting had taken place between Pooja Dadlani and KP Gosavi but did not know that money had been taken.

“When I got to know that Aryan was arrested, I helped in getting the money returned from Gosavi and Patil. I won’t comment on [any] NCB official. I will give my statement to Mumbai police,” Sam D’Souza said on Sunday.


Sam D’Souza’s name cropped up in the investigation into the extortion that allegedly took place in the Mumbai cruise drugs case. It was alleged that NCB zonal director Sameer Wankhede and others demanded money for the release of Aryan Khan. As of now, NCB’s vigilance team and Mumbai Police’s special investigation team (SIT) are probing the matter.

On the allegation of extortion, he said on Sunday, “I have nothing to do with it. I [only] knew Sunil Patil, who called me and gave me information about the cruise party.”

D’Souza claimed that Patil had asked him for contact with the NCB. D’Souza shared the contact details of an NCB official. He said Patil then informed him about KP Gosavi and another individual, Manish Bhanushali, contacting him in the matter.
