Saif Ali Khan has got a notice from the Interpol after it has surfaced that he owes 10,000 Euros to a Bulgarian firm and hasn't paid back. An amount of 10,000 Euros is at the centre of a legal dispute involving actor Saif Ali Khan who has been sent a notice by the Interpol on behalf of the Bulgarian government over a hunting expedition he undertook in Romania in 2013, reports Mumbai Mirror.
Mirror further reported that In November 2013, Khan and a party of three, via email, arranged for a hunting expedition of wild bears in the Carpathian Mountains in Sfantu Gheorghe in Romania through a Bulgarian company that specialises in procuring the requisite permits and licences for such adventures. “The hunting allegedly by the actor was conducted between November 29, 2013, and December 2, 2013, for an amount of 24,000 Euros out of which about 14,000 Euros were paid in cash including an amount for taxidermy of the hunted animal as a trophy,” sources said. A few days after Khan left Bulgaria, the company got in touch with him in Mumbai but was told that the money had already been transferred to the account of one Georgi Petev who, along with the company’s official, had met Khan in Bulgaria before the expedition. It is still unclear as to why the money was transferred to his account, Mumbai Mirror states.
Times of India further reports that the missing 10, 000 Euros have reportedly created more problems for Saif and everyone involved with him in the Big Hunting Game. The actor’s team has reportedly paid 14, 000 Euros in cash with an amount for the hunting trophy, which is the taxidermy of the hunted animal. Once the game was over and payment was done, Saif returned to the city and when the company contacted his tem for the remaining amount, they replied saying they paid the money to a certain Georgi Petev. Georgi reportedly accompanied Saif and his group during the expedition in Bulgaria, along with an official of the company they were working with. As per reports, the company is trying to track Goergi down, who is missing. The Bulgarian officials sought legal help and filed a complaint to find Georgi back in 2014.
