Just yesterday, we had reported that Salman Khan had filed a petition seeking quashing of contempt case against him for posting the details of court orders against him on his website — www.salmankhanfiles.com.
Reports have it that the actor’s lawyer Ravi Kadam pleaded that the magistrate had no jurisdiction to issue notice to him on the contempt complaint filed against him by activist Hemant Patil, as the 2002 hit-and-run case had been committed to the sessions court. The latest we hear is, the proceedings against Salman has been put on hold until further orders.
Apparently, activist Hemant Patil has been given 3 weeks time to file a reply to Salman’s petition.
As per Patil’s complaint, 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.
Salman Khan had pleaded that he had created the website only to ensure that there was no incorrect reporting by the media and said that no contempt had been committed by him.
The Bandra magistrate had issued notice to the actor on July 10
