MUMBAI: Actor Arjun Rampal has been summoned by the Mumbai police for meeting jailed gangster Arun Gawli in January.
The JJ Marg police station received information that the actor met Gawli at JJ Hospital last month.
Rampal, who plays Gawli in under-production film ‘Daddy’, spent close to an hour with the don in the hospital’s Out-patient Department on December 29 last year.
The actor, apparently, did not have permission to meet the gangster, who is serving a life term in connection with the murder of corporator Kamlakar Jamsandekar in 2008. Gawli was brought to the hospital for a routine check-up and was in judicial custody when he met Rampal.
An internal inquiry has also been ordered against the team of policemen who had accompanied Gawli to the hospital from Navi Mumbai’s Taloja jail.
