Today, Agisilaos Demetriades, brother of Arjun Rampal’s girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades was arrested by Narcotics Control Bureau for the third time in the ongoing drugs case from Goa. Since Arjun’s name has been cropping up with Agisilaos’ arrest, the actor issued a statement urging media to not drag his and his partner’s name unnecessarily since they are not a party to Agisilaos’ alleged misdoings.
Arjun, who is currently filming in London said in his statement:
“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.
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."
Previously, Gabriella and Arjun both were summoned for questioning in the case when Agisilaos’ name had first cropped up.
