Rahat rues letting down Indian people

New Delhi: A repentant Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, the Pakistani singer confined by DRI for questioning, told his interrogators that he had let down the people of India from whom he had received so much appreciation. “Main sufiana kalam gata hoon, lekin insaan ke kanoon ko tor baitha,” he told DRI officials before signing an adjudication order.

While giving an undertaking that he will appear for further questioning whenever summoned, Rahat said, “Is mulk se itna pyar mila... aur main unke nazar mein gir gaya.”
In its adjudication order, the DRI slapped a penalty of Rs 15 lakh each on Rahat and his nephew and manager Maroof besides confiscating $1,43,000 seized from their possession while they were about to board an Emirates flight from Indira Gandhi International Airport on February 13. Additional director general of DRI R K Sharma said the investigation was still not complete. “Rahat and his associate has given an undertaking that they will appear here whenever required,” Sharma said.
