He told CNN-IBN, "Neetu's charges are baseless. This is a political conspiracy. I have not got Neetu deported. This is an absurd charge. I haven't met or spoken to Neetu in over a year and I am not in hiding. Neetu has nothing to fear from me."

Neetu was picked up from her hostel in Pune on December 5 and deported to Nepal.
