"Abu Salem was contacted on Salman's phone in 2001"

Special Correspondent

Recordings, voice samples sent to Central Forensic Laboratory

MUMBAI: : Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister R.R. Patil on Wednesday told the Assembly that the Mumbai police were investigating the alleged telephonic conversation between actor Salman Khan and actress Aishwarya Rai four years ago, and assured the members that action would be taken against anybody found guilty.

Mr. Patil, who holds the Home portfolio, said the police learnt in August 2001 that Abu Salem, underworld don and accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, was being contacted on Salman Khan's telephone and therefore the line was put under surveillance for about two months. But he did not say the recording of the alleged telephonic conversation between Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai, recently carried by the media, was made during this period or that the call originated from the actor's telephone.

Cassette obtained

Mr. Patil said the police obtained an audiocassette of the conversation, recorded the statements of the actor and the actress and also their voice samples.

The recordings were being sent to the Central Forensic Laboratory in Chandigarh.
