A channel recently ran a programme about Salman Khan’s criminal case of 2002, where his vehicle rammed into the steps of a bakery in Bandra, killing one person and injuring a few. However, the channel bore the brunt of this, as Salman filed a case of defamation against the channel.
Following this, the channel decided not to telecast the objectionable content, as the High Court, after accepting lawyer Neville Deboo’s undertaking, that the channel will not telecast anything within the allegations made by the actor, adjourned the reply of the plea to June 25.
The High Court first restrained the repeat telecast of the programme and on the following day, asked the advocate for the channel to explain the basis on which the allegations were made. The order said, “The allegations are more on the fact that fake doctors and medical reports are produced by the Mumbai Police as witnesses, to which again he has no answer and seeks time to file an Affidavit – in- Reply.’”
