Pakistani man who made deer skin sandals for Shah Rukh Khan arrested

Islamabad, Aug 27 (IANS) Pakistan Wildlife Department on Friday arrested a shoemaker who made Peshawari sandals with deer skin for Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan.

With years of experience and one of Peshawar’s oldest chappal maestros, Jahangir Khan boasted about the sandals in the media only to invite Wildlife Department to take action against him. The department later confiscated the Peshawari sandals and deer skin, ARY News reported.

As the killing of deer was prohibited, the police was interrogating as to how did Jahangir get deer skin and who else were involved in the illegal activity.

From Peshawar, King Khan’s paternal cousin sister, Noor Jehan, is due to fly to India next month to meet him and she was to deliver the sandals to the Bollywood actor.

“Since I will be visiting Shah Rukh Khan very soon, I telephoned him to guess what he wants from Pakistan and he has actually asked me to bring Peshawari chappals for him,” Noor Jehan was quoted as saying.

It took a month to design and then create the masterpiece, said Jahangir who has a long history of making Peshawari sandals for well-known Pakistani celebrities and politicians.

Sandals from Jahangir’s shop in Peshawar are also frequently exported on expatriates’ special demands to other parts of the world, including England, Dubai and Australia.
