A lower court had Oct 23 issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against the actor for failing to appear in court.
Aamir has been accused of disrespecting the national flag in a complaint filed by advocate Shailendra Sharma. He was the chief guest at a function organised by a car showroom Aug 16 where 11 national flags were hoisted. Sharma alleged that the flag was not lowered even after sunset and was treated shabbily.
'Firstly, the tricolour was not removed much after sunset. After it was pointed out to the hosts, it was taken down in a derogatory manner and later put on the ground according to media persons present at the function,' the complainant said.
After the arrest warrant was issued, Aamir, through his counsel Pankaj Bagadia, moved an application Tuesday convincing the court that he was not guilty of the complaint filed against him. Special Sessions judge Mohammed Shamim granted him anticipatory bail and fixed Nov 7 as the next date for hearing.
