Salman Khan always seems to be dragged in the news for all the wrong reasons. Apart from his blockbuster movies, Bollywood’s Bhaijaan always finds himself in the midst of controversies, may it be his infamous hit-and-run case, or his recent indecent comments about Priyanka Chopra leaving the movie Bharat to marry Nick Jonas. Looks like Khan has found himself in yet another squabble.
This time, a television journalist has pressed various charges against the 53-year-old actor. According to recent in.com reports, the lawyers of a TV journalist, Ashok S. Pandey – the Maharashtra head of the JK24x7 news channel, have filed a complaint against Salman on the charges of assault, threat, and abuse.
The complaint has been made against Salman Khan, his assistant Vijay and one unknown friend.
According to an incident narrated by Ashok, he spotted Salman Khan cycling on the roads when he was driving in his car from Juhu to Kandivali. He had asked for permission to click the actor, which was agreed to.
But later, when Ashok started clicking the pictures, Salman directed his aides to stop him. According to the lawyer, Neeraj Gupta, his aides allegedly attacked his car and assaulted him, with the actor himself joining in. The complaint also states that Salman tried to snatch the victim's phone in order to destroy the pictures and tried to erase some private data.
The Tere Naam actor has been accused of trying to grab the phone once more when the victim started going towards D.N. Nagar police station to lodge a complaint. Even his complaint was disposed of stating that there was no offence in the case.
Ashok has also alleged that he received a call from one of the representatives of Salman, asking to settle the matter, which he refused. The victim is looking forward to taking action by going to court. The case was filed in the criminal court in front of the Court in Andheri.
The lawyer in a statement, had said, “The matter will come up for hearing on July 12. At that time, the court will decide whether the police will be directed to conduct an investigation, or issue summons to the accused.”
