Rahat to pay Rs1.5m fine

NEW DEHLI: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and his manager Maroof Ali have been fined Indian Rs 1.5 million each under customs act of India for carrying undeclared foreign currency.

The singer may return to Lahore on Sunday.

Khan and his manager Ali were caught at the Indira Gandhi International Airport on February 13 for carrying an undeclared sum of $142,000 in cash and cheques when they were about to board a flight to Lahore.

After detaining the two at the airport, a team of the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) raided two premises of event manager Chitresh Srivastava in Mumbai, which resulted in the recovery of around Rs 5 million.

All the organisers who paid to Khan for his shows in India would face action under customs act. After completion of probe by the DRI, the matter was sent for adjudication to additional commissioner (customs) Ashutosh Baranwal. - The News
