Mumbai: Of late, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has been in news for all the wrong reasons. And this time around, a First Information Report has been filed against him for dishonouring the Indian national flag.
Ravi Brahme, the complainant, had lodged the FIR with the Chatuhshrungi police station after he came across a video on YouTube showing SRK fluttering the tricolor upside down. The video in question had been uploaded by a news channel in April, 2011. And the same is being investigated by the Mumbai police.
Talking to a daily, Deputy Commissioner of Police Shahaji Umap said, “Khan has been booked under Sections of Prevention of Insult to National Honour Act, 1971. There is a provision to register complaint of any jurisdiction, and then get it transferred accordingly. The case was registered on August 14 and has been transferred to zone nine of Mumbai police for further investigation. The complainant has attached some photos and videos with the complaint.”
Brahme had also lodged a complaint against model Gehna Vashisht for showing disrespect to the tricolour by wearing it as a bikini.
Vashisht was arrested and subsequently released on bail on Sunday.
