Bollywood actor Salman Khan has filed a petition in Bombay High Court quashing of a complaint filed against him by activist Hemant Patil. A complaint was filed against the actor in Magistrate’s court for posting court orders in cases against him on his website -- www.salmankhanfiles.com.
Mr. Khan's petition, in which he pleaded that he had created the website only to ensure that there was no incorrect reporting by the media, is expected to come up for hearing tomorrow before Justice KU Chandiwal.
In the complaint it was alleged that actor Salman Khan has committed contempt of court by posting court proceedings on his website about the cases he was embroiled in including the 2002 hit-and-run case as the matters were subjudice.
But Salman Khan has pleaded that that he had created a website only to ensure that there was no incorrect reporting by the media and that the website gave factual information about his cases and nothing beyond that. He further said that no contempt had been committed by him.
The actor pleaded that the complaint and the summons issued to him by the court to appear before it may be quashed and set aside. He said the magistrate had not applied his mind on the complaint filed.
