Rahat Fateh Ali Khan said that he had done nothing wrong and they were carrying the money because they were traveling in a group and the act was negligent. The singer’s lawyer has submitted the show tickets and events to prove he collected the said amount from the shows in 2011.

Enforcement Directorate is the governing agency which deals with such forex violations under FEMA.
