Hrithik Roshan's father/ actor and filmmaker Rakesh Roshan was allegedly attacked outside his Santacruz office in Mumbai in January 2000. According to the reports, the sharpshooter had fired six rounds, out of which two bullets had hit Roshan. However, the latest development in the case suggests that a sharpshooter named Sunil V Gaikwad who was involved in the attack and jumped parole has recently been arrested by the police in Thane city after he jumped parole. The accused was seized in Kalwa, Thane on Friday. The senior inspector of the Central Crime Unit Anil Honrao told PTI that they received a tip-off that Gaikwad is coming to the Parsik Circle area and accordingly, they laid a trap and caught him.
"The accused has 11 cases of murder and seven cases of attempt to murder registered against him. One of these includes an attempt on Bollywood director Rakesh Roshan's life in 2000," the senior inspector further added. "Gaikwad had been sentenced to life imprisonment in a murder case and was lodged at Nashik central jail. However, he came out on 28-day parole on 26 June this year," the official said. "He was expected to return to jail after completion of the parole period. However, he did not do so. He was hiding till his arrest last night," Honrao added.
Meanwhile, on the professional front, Rakesh Roshan is all set to bring the fourth instalment of Krrish along with his son Hrithik Roshan. On the other hand, Hrithik gave two back-to-back hits in 2019 with Super 30 and War that turned out to be a blockbuster.
