Salman Khan files petition seeking quashing of contempt case

As reported earlier, ‘The Salman Khan Files’, a website opened by the Khan himself to update his fans on the on-going court cases against him, had got into trouble, when social activist Hemant Patil had filed a complaint in a Magistrate Court seeking action against Salman Khan.

Hemant alleges the actor has committed crime by divulging the court proceedings on his website regarding the 2002 hit-and-run case. He claimed that court matters are strongly guarded and posting matters is against the judicial system.

Reports are that the Kick actor has filed a petition seeking quashing of complaint filed against him, pleading that he had created a website only to ensure that there was no incorrect reporting by the media and said that no contempt had been committed by him.

The spokesperson of Salman said, “We have created a website called salmankhanfiles.com and we will put out all the information pertaining to the case on the site. So that whoever wants to know the progress on the case can follow it there.”

The website writes, “Certain court cases are filed against me. There is widespread media reporting of these cases. The reports are sometimes inaccurate and misleading, and cause damage to my reputation, both personal and professional. I have been advised to put up this website to provide easy accessible information about the ongoing status of these cases. This website will be updated by my advocates from time to time. It will not contain any information about the merits of the case, nor any comment. I encourage all those interested in knowing about these cases, particularly the media, to verify facts available on this website. I have the greatest respect for the law, the judiciary and the legal process. Nothing on this website is intended to influence anyone, the sole purpose being to present the facts, and status of the cases I am involved in.”

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.

Salman’s next hearing will take place on September 5.
