Arjun Rampal's girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades' brother Agisilaos was arrested in Goa by NCB in an alleged drugs case. According to a report in DNA, Agisilaos has been sent to judicial custody for two weeks. Amid this, Arjun and his girlfriend, who are currently holidaying in London, have been making headlines. And now, Arjun has released a statement in this regard and stated that he is shocked. He also mentioned that he has full trust in the judicial system.
His statement read, "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. 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. 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. I appreciate all your support and humbly request you to be honest and sensitive in this regard," he added.
