Social activist Hemant Patil has filed a complaint in a Magistrate Court seeking action against Sallu alleging that sharing any information on his website related to his impending case is contempt of court
Considering several inaccurate media reports pertaining to Salman Khan’s brush with the law, the superstar had started a website – www.salmankhanfiles.com – to provide all the facts related to all the cases he’s involved in. After the Mumbai Sessions Court rejected Sallu’s plea for retrial and booked him for culpable homicide, the superstar was worried about several media reports which were apparently damaging his image. And so he decided to launch the website.
But little did the actor know that this would land him into big trouble. “When his hit-and-run case is underway and matter is subjudice, how can he use Internet to spread information about the proceedings?” Hemant asked in his complaint filed yesterday, according to his lawyer Wajid Khan. Patil claimed that the Bandra police station refused to register a complaint against the Mental actor and hence he decided to move the Magistrate Court. Patil said this is a violation of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971. We are told the Magistrate has accepted Patil’s complaint and the hearing has been scheduled for August 5.
