Bollywood Actor Arjun Rampal’s girlfriend’s brother Agisilaos Demetriades was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for possession of Narcotic Drugs in Goa. This is the third time the South African National has been arrested by the NCB.
After the actor’s name was dragged in this case. The actor is currently filming in london, and this is what he had to say about the case.
“Dear Friends ,Followers & Public, I’m as shocked and taken aback as you are with this latest development today. It’s unfortunate that my name is being unnecessarily dragged in every publication though I have no association whatsoever.” The actor said.
He further added,”As far as my family and I are concerned, my direct family and I are law-abiding citizens. And while the incident involves a person who is a relative of my partner, I have no other connection or relationship other than that with this person. I request the media to not make headlines using my name as we are NOT related and this is causing hurt and confusion for my own family and the people I have a professional relationship with.”
He also expressed his faith in our legal system saying,” I have faith in our legal system and whoever is on the wrong side on the law, should be treated as the judiciary deems fit. My trust is in the system in these matters. Let the law take its course and kindly refrain from attaching my partner’s and my name to something we have nothing to do with. “
He ended the statement with, “I appreciate all your support and humbly request you to be honest and sensitive in this regard.”
