Salman Khan’s name is involved in yet another legal matter in the midst of the ongoing Panvel farmhouse and blackbuck case. Salman Khan was summoned by the Andheri Magistrate court today, April 5, in connection with a journalist phone snatching incident in 2019.
The actor filed an appeal with the Bombay High Court in response to a summons issued to him by the Metropolitan Magistrate Court in Andheri, Mumbai. Salman and his bodyguard Nawaz Shaikh have been summoned in connection with a complaint filed by a journalist in 2019.
The incident occurred while Salman Khan was riding his bike through the streets of Mumbai and was photographed by the media. However, the actor is said to have gotten into a heated argument with the media personnel and snatched the journalist’s phone.
According to a report, the matter is being handled by the city’s DN Nagar Police Station. A police officer also filed a report, which stated, “He has reported that on the day of the incident, a dispute took place between complainant and proposed accused persons (Khan and Shaikh). The investigating officer has quoted that offences under section 504 (Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC have been made out against accused persons,” Magistrate RR Khan had taken note.
The Metropolitan Magistrate Court then issued summons against the actor, prompting Salman Khan to file an application with the Bombay High Court. Salman’s petition is expected to be heard later today.
