Defence lawyer, Rizwan Merchant, claimed that Sahil Khan is not the owner or a partner of the Lion Book betting app. Quoted by Free Press Journal, Merchant said in his argument, “Several Bollywood celebrities promoted the Lion Book website like the applicant but none other than the applicant came to be arrested in the subject crime.”


The media publication further reports that after hearing both sides, the court said that they would agree with the contention of Merchant that there is no material collected by the investigation agency against Khan to make a prima facie case of committing the offenses, alleged in the subject FIR/complaint.
