Arjun Rampal issues a statement after NCB arrests his girlfriend's brother
Arjun Rampal urged the media to not use his name unnecessarily and stated that him or his direct family are not involved in the case
Recently, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested Arjun Rampal's girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades' brother Agisilaos Demetriades after recovering banned substance from his possession in Goa.
Reacting to the news, Arjun Rampal who is currently filming in London for his upcoming project, issued an official statement that said:
“Dear Friends, Followers & Public, 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”.
Arjun also urged the media to not use his name unnecessarily and stated “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”.
On a closing note, he said, “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”.
Arjun and Gabriella have been dating each other for a few years now. They are parents to their 2-year-old son, Arik.
