New Delhi: Kiran Gosavi -- an independent witness in the cruise drug bust case in which Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan is one of the accused -- had expressed his willingness to turn himself into cops at Madiyaon police station in Uttar Pradesh's Lucknow. But Gosavi claimed that the cops have refused to let him surrender there on jurisdictional grounds, as per an NDTV report.

However, the Lucknow Police refuted the claims of Gosavi trying to surrender to them. "I did not receive any call on the matter. I have no information about it," Station House Officer (SHO) of Madiyaon, Lucknow, Manoj Singh was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

An unverified audio clip circulated by sources close to Gosavi earlier indicated his request at a local station in Lucknow was unceremoniously turned down. The clip was of a phone call where a man, purportedly Mr Gosavi, is heard asking if it was the Madiyaon police chowki. After confirming, he said, "I want to come there. I am Kiran Gosavi. I want to surrender here".

"Why have you come here?" the man responded.

"This is the nearest police station for me at the moment," Gosavi said.

Once the man confirmed that he indeed wanted to surrender, he said, "No, you can't surrender here. Try somewhere else".

Lucknow police commissioner had told NDTV that Gosavi cannot surrender in the Uttar Pradesh capital, "because the Lucknow police station does not have the jurisdiction to take any action against him".

NDTV has not been able to verify the authenticity of the clip. But its wide circulation on social media saw the Madiyaon police make big preparations to ward off another possible effort at surrender by the man who is wanted in Maharashtra.

A number of officers were seen waiting outside the building. The media had turned out in force too.
