It was not clear whether the demand was connected with the tussle between Sunjay and Bollywood actor Karisma over the custody of their five-month-old daughter Samaira.
Sunjay had alleged that Karisma had got a passport issued to their minor daughter without his consent by flouting all laws and that she was planning to leave for the US along with Samaira without taking him into confidence.
