Earlier this month we had reported that a local court had reserved its decision on the case filed against actors Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan for hurting religious sentiments. Now we hear that a Delhi court, presided by Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vandana Jain has dismissed the criminal complaint filed against Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan. However, apart from this the court has allowed the complainant advocate’s plea to record pre-summoning evidence in support of his complaint.
For the uninitiated, advocate Gaurav Gulati had sought to file an FIR against Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan along with Colors channel and director and producer of Bigg Boss 9 for alleged offences under sections 295A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings), 298 (uttering words with deliberate intent to wound religious feelings) and 34 (common intention) of IPC. In the complaint, Gulati alleged that in a video for the show Shah Rukh and Salman were seen wearing shoes on the sets of the temple while shooting for an episode of Bigg Boss 9 where the idol can be seen in the background.
However on June 1, the court had reserved its order after hearing the arguments of the complainant who had questioned the action taken report (ATR) filed by the Delhi Police, wherein both Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan had been given a clean chit.
