    Rahat arrested in Delhi

    ACCLAIMED Pakistani sufi singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan was arrested at Delhi Airport on Sunday for possessing foreign currency – 124,000 dollars, reported Indian media.
    Rahat, who is also a hit Bollywood playback singer, had arrived at the airport on a flight from Karachi and was intercepted by personnel from Directorate of Revenue Intelligence acting on some prior information.
    The 37-year-old, nephew of late qawwali maestro Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, was earlier too involved in a controversy when organisers of a concert in Gurgaon filed a police complaint against him in July last year for his failure to turn up for a show. Rahat was detained at New Delhi’s Indra Gandhi International Airport on charges of carrying undeclared money amounting to 124,000 US dollars. He was questioned and interrogated by customs officials for about five hours. Later, he was arrested formally.
    Rahat will be presented in court on Monday (today).
    Meanwhile, Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Sunday telephoned Pakistani High Commissioner to New Delhi and inquired about the details regarding the prominent singer. Malik directed the country’s envoy in India to extend consular support to Rahat. Malik heard a detailed briefing on the matter from India Shahid Malik. He directed Shahid to keep a tab on the issue, state-run Pakistan Television reported. The envoy assured the minister that he and his staff would ‘undertake all efforts to facilitate Rahat’, the channel said.
