RAJASTHAN HIGH COURT STAYS INVESTIGATION OVER SALMAN KHAN’S CASTEIST REMARKS
The Rajasthan court on Monday stayed police investigation against Salman Khan for allegedly making casteist remarks during an interview. This came as a big relief to the superstar.
On February 22, a petition was filed in a Delhi court seeking to lodge an FIR against actors Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif and other for allegedly making casteist remark during the promotion of their movie Tiger Zinda Hai. The court decided to consider the matter on February 27 and also sought a reply from Delhi police on the complaint. The plea filed in Patiala House Court, states that the accused persons had “committed atrocity” on the members of a certain caste and insulted them by making such remarks.
The complaint was made by Harnam Singh, a former Chairman of Delhi Commission for Karamcharis, that the remark was made by Khan during a programme on a television channel while Kaif, “rather than protesting at the offensive and insensitive statement, joined the accused number 1 (Khan) in insulting and abusing the victim through her conduct.”
