A source close to the development in the Salman Khan case has clarified that Mumbai court has asked the police to investigate and submit the report in Salman Khan case.
The source shared, “The police didn’t file the FIR so he went to court asking for a FIR to be filed. Court didn’t permit that. Only asked the police to investigate and submit a report. It’s section 202 order. There is a counter/cross complain as well”.
The magistrate in the Andheri Court has ordered an inquiry against Salman Khan in the case of misconduct against a Mumbai journalist which had been twisted overall in circulation with no basis. The development comes months after the journalist, Ashok Pandey, moved court seeking registration of FIR against Salman and his bodyguards, who have allegedly assaulted him despite him seeking permission to click his photos on his mobile phone who was on a bicycle.
The incident took place on April 24, when Salman Khan was riding a bicycle during which he was escorted by two of his bodyguards. Pandey told the daily that he was riding a car when he saw Khan. On spotting him, Pandey started filming him after seeking permission from Khan’s bodyguard. He stated that this enraged Salman and his bodyguards came to his car and started thrashing Pandey. Pandey also alleged that Salman too assaulted him and threatened him of dire consequences. That is when Pandey approached the cops, they refused to register his complaint. The police claimed that no crime was committed. Due to which, Pandey approached the Andheri Metropolitan court and sought registration of FIR against Salman Khan and his bodyguards. In an earlier PTI report, it was stated that Pandey demanded the trio be booked under section 323 (causing hurt), section 392 (robbery), section 506 (criminal intimidation), section 426 (mischief) and section 34 (common intention) of the IPC.
