Actor Aamir Khan has lost custody of his mentally-ill brother. On Saturday, the Bandra metropolitan magistrate said Faisal need not be in anybody's custody and can live anywhere he wants to.

The court also directed Faisal to report to JJ Hospital for check-ups regularly. The hospital had diagnosed that he was suffering from a schizo-affected psychosis.

Faisal's counsel S.A. Vasid presented details, like the police complaint he filed over a property dispute in UP and film agreements, to prove his client's “personal, professional, mental and social well-being.” Said Faisal, “It's a great feeling. I don't want to go back to my family which treated me so badly.”But may be with time, I will be able to forget.”

Last October, Faisal's mother had filed a complaint after he went missing. Faisal, who was found in Lonavla, alleged that Aamir had illegally confined him and feared that Aamir might kill him by giving him wrong medicines. Both Aamir and his father Hussain sought Faisal's custody, but later Hussain withdrew his application.
