PESHAWAR: Sources here have revealed that a Pakistani cobbler named Jahangir Khan has been detained following a Press Conference in which he had told the media about his sending a couple of  Peshawari sandal pairs prepared from deer skin to Bollywood King Khan.

According to the details, a cousin of Shah Rukh who resides here in Peshawar, visited the shoemaker’s shop the previous Friday and asked him to make the sandals for SRK.

In this context, a statement quoted police officials as saying: “Apparently Jahangir Khan is a big fan of Shah Rukh. He had simply decided to send the Bollywood star a special gift.

“Soon after the news spread, the Wildlife Department officials contacted us and filed a complaint. We had to go and pick up Jahangir who is now behind bars.”

In addition, it has been learnt that Peshawar Wildlife Department has already instituted the investigation to probe this matter:  whether deerskin was used in making the sandals or not.

“If he has used deer skin than he will face fine and prosecution as under Wildlife Laws,” the official further added.
