Mumbai, May 31: Days after reports over her alleged involvement in an abduction case, Sana Khan finally came out in the open to tell the "real story" from her side. Sana, the leading heroine of Salman Khan's upcoming movie Mental, reportedly had gone missing ever since she was booked in the case.
Overruling all controversies, Sana was quoted as saying, "I am very much here, shooting for my films, attending events and performing at live shows in the last one month."
Times of India interviewed Sana who said, "It is not
true that I wanted to kidnap a minor girl. I went there only
after I was told that the girl's mother was a huge fan and wanted
to meet me. In fact, the girl told me that she would join me later
and asked me to go to her place with my cousin. The other two boys
who have been dragged in the case didn't even enter their
The actress, a former participant of TV reality show Bigg Boss, also said, "My cousin insisted that I meet the girl. She was sitting inside an ice-cream parlour. If there was a problem between her and my cousin, why would she come out to meet me?"
Sana also tried to support her statements with logic and evidence. The young model-turned-actress said, "The CCTV of the building in which the girl stays should be having all the evidence - what time I went there and how long I was around - to know the real story. The spot where the family has alleged that the kidnapping took place is a crowded area. If there was any such attempt, many would've seen it. I was not hiding or covering my face; the whole world knows who I am today."
Sana earlier had asserted that the minor girl's family members have been trying to earn money easily after framing Sana in a false case. However, the actress also had vowed to fight with the situation to tell her "real story".
A case of abduction has been registered against Sana and two others in Navi Mumbai.Sana along with her cousin Naved Khan allegedly had tried to kidnap a 15-year-old girl who had refused to marry Naved.
Naved and his two friends -- Kshitij Gopinath Dubey and Vismit Vilas Ambre have already been arrested by police. However, there were no reports about Sana's whereabouts.
According to sources, Naved and the victim became friends on social networking site Facebook. The relation came to an end when Naved proposed the girl who later refused that. Sana on April 30 allegedly had tried to kidnap the girl when she was returning from her tuition classes.
Naved and his friends allegedly had tried to drag the girl into Sana's BMW car. However, the minor girl managed to escape from the place and reached home. To her utter surprise, Sana, Naved and their friends were already there and were having a heated argument with victim's mother.
According to police sources, Sana accused the girl of ditching her cousin and threatened to teach her a lesson. The victim's mother lodged a police complaint against Sana and other three accused later on the day.
Police registered case of kidnapping, wrongful restraint, and trespass. Meanwhile, Sana's spokesman Ismail Sheikh overruled reports that the actress is on the run and said, "How can Sana kidnap anybody? Yes, an FIR has been lodged against her but that's because she was wrongly accused of forcing a minor girl to marry an 18-year-old boy."
