The Amboli police will seek custody of self proclaimed ‘miracle doctor’ Munir Khan, after his custody with the Versova police ends on April 8, in connection with a complaint registered with them against him. The Amboli police officers said they had registered a case against Khan after the Food and Drug Administration department had directed a few complainants over to them.

The case was transferred to the Amboli police as Khan had raised allegations against the Versova police, saying that they would not be able to do justice to him as they had vested interests. The case with the Amboli police is also with regard to the allegation that claimed his “Body Revival” medicine could cure cancer, tuberculosis and several other diseases.


The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) contention was that the advertisements were in violation of the conditions the court had set for him while granting him bail in 2010, after his first arrest. These conditions forbade him from exaggerating the qualities of his medicines, the FDA argued.
