Club girl complains to cops over boxer Tom Carlin
Boxer Amir Khan is set to be quizzed by police after a nightclub waitress claimed she was indecently assaulted.
Former Commonwealth champ Khan, 22, and three pals are also likely to be quizzed over allegations that the girl’s home was trashed and that property was stolen. Khan, who fights next month for the WBA world light welterweight title, is alleged to have met the 20-year-old brunette while on a night out with pals in Funky Buddha club in London’s West End on April 21.
The girl claims that after drinking and dancing with her, Khan went back to her shared student house in north London where he was joined by pals.
The girl made a complaint last week at Holborn police station in central London. A bag of white powder which she claims she found in her house is being analysed for possible drugs.
It is believed that officers from Operation Sapphire which investigates sex allegations will approach Khan, of Bolton, Lancs, and his friends this week.
Police said: “The Sapphire Unit is investigating a number of allegations, the most serious being of a sexual nature.”
Khan’s agent said: “We are aware of the complaint made to police. It’s in the hands of our lawyers.”
