SRINAGAR — The alleged conman from Gujarat Kiran Bhai Patel has claimed that police didn’t provide him Z-security but that was meant for two other persons, both hailing from Gujarat, who were accompanying him.
The Counsel for the accused, Advocate Rehan Gowhar told the news agency KNT that all the allegations leveled against his client are baseless and untrue. Quoting his client, Advocate Rehan Gowhar said that police set both the accomplices of his client free and the Z-security was actually for them.
Kiran Bhai Patel, an alleged conman from Gujarat, has been arrested by Jammu Kashmir Police for posing as Additional Director of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).
The accused is in judicial custody for 15 days and the matter is before the Chief Judicial Magistrate Srinagar Raja Tasleem Arif. The Counsel for the accused said that they will apply for bail at the next hearing.
“Granting bail is the discretionary power of the court but we are claiming bail as a matter of right,” he said, adding that the offenses for which his client has been arrested are not serious and grave in nature.
