Mumbai: A Sessions Court on Thursday rejected an anticipatory bail plea of a person, accused of cheating several people with false promises of curing AIDS and cancer.

Sessions Judge R G Awachat, while rejecting Munir Khan's bail application, granted him interim protection from arrest until February 22.

Khan is accused of selling each bottle of his medicine 'Body Revival' for Rs 15,000 claiming that it would cure dreaded diseases like AIDS and cancer.

In his anticipatory bail plea, Khan said he was innocent and has been falsely implicated. He claimed to have obtained licence from Rajasthan government to manufacture the medicines.

Versova police have registered a case of cheating against Khan following complaints from several people. According to police, Khan does not have any degree in medicine and was not a qualified doctor.

Veteran actress Tabassum, who had appeared in a promotional advertisement of Khan's "wonder drug" 'Body Revival', had filed an intervening application in the court opposing Khan's anticipatory bail plea.

She had earlier lodged a complaint against Khan alleging that he was threatening her.
