Actor Sahil Khan has been in the news after he was accused of harassing former Mr India contest winner Manoj Patil. Patil’s mother has said that this let him allegedly commit suicide. The former Mr India tried to take his life by consuming some pills at around 12.30 am on September 16. He was later rushed to the Cooper Hospital in Mumbai where his condition is said to be critical.
Now Sahil Khan has finally broken his silence over the issue. Releasing an official statement in the press conference, Sahil Khan said, “Yeh mudda mera aur unka hai hi nahi. Yeh mudda unke aur Raj Faujdar ke beech mein hain (This matter is not between me and him. This matter is between him and Raj Faujdar).” He also revealed that Raj contacted him and a few more athletes like Junaid Kaliwala.
Raj Faujdar who was also present at the press conference accused Manoj Patil of selling him fake steroids that affected his health. He said and quoted by IndiaToday “Manoj patil ko paise ke liye bola kyunki mujhe fake steroids mile the. Unhone bola ki de denge. Ek do saal se yehi chala raha hai. Maine 20-25 din baat ki toh gaaliyaan di. Mere pet mein ek saal se problem hain. Dhamkiyaan bhi di. Mere paas saare recording hain. Main police mein complain nahi ki kyunki mujhe paise chahiye the (When I asked money from Manoj Patil after he sold me fake steroid, he said he will return it in some time but 2-3 years passed. When I called him 20-25 days ago, he hurled abuses at me. I am having problem in my stomach (due to fake steroids). He even threatened me. I have all the recordings of the calls. I did not file a complaint with the police, as I wanted my money back).”
Sahil Khan issued an official statement. It reads, “I have been involved in the suicide attempt case of Mr. Manoj Patil and hence I want to bring forward my side of the story today. I want to speak about the real truth and the real reason why my name is bought into this controversy, along with proof. If after that anyone feels that my explanation n proof are not convincing enough, than let the legal system take its due course, but if any other individual is proved wrong then there should be legal action taken against him too (sic).”
Manoj Patil had written a letter to the Oshiwara Police demanding an FIR against Sahil Khan a few days back. Patil alleged that he was being defamed by actor and bodybuilder Sahil Khan.
