Singer Asha Bhosle's youngest son Anand on Saturday told police that he was not aware of how his elder sister Varsha came to possess the pistol with which she allegedly shot herself earlier this week.
Anand, who arrived from Singapore on Friday night, recorded his statement with the Gamdevi police on Saturday. Police had sent summons at his Lower Parel residence on Thursday.
Varsha (56), who was suffering from depression, allegedly committed suicide by shooting herself in the temple on Monday morning with a pistol of Belgian make at her residence in 'Prabhu Kunj' apartments on posh Peddar Road in South Mumbai.
Anand in his statement said his mother had lost a pistol three decades ago. He also showed the police the documents of the lost pistol. Police said the .6mm Belgium make pistol, which was used by Varsha to commit suicide, could have been the lost pistol.
He told the police that he had no clue how Varsha had got the pistol. He has informed the police that he too owns a pistol but its make is different from the one which was lost.
"Due to unavailability of tickets it took five days for Anand to reach Mumbai," police said.
