SSR Case: Arbaaz Khan files defamation case
The Bollywood actor/produce takes a legal action on social media users over his name being dragged in the deaths of Disha Salian and Sushant Singh Rajput
Bollywood actor and producer Arbaaz Khan and brother of actor Salman Khan, has filed a defamation case in the Bombay Civil Court against some social media users who are making defamatory allegations through their posts and online videos, alleging his involvement in the recent unfortunate deaths of Disha Salian and Sushant Singh Rajput which are currently under investigation by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Narcotics Control?Bureau (NCB).
On September 28, the court granted an interim order against the defendants Vibhor Anand and Sakshi Bhandari, and unknown defendants named John Doe / Ashok Kumar, asking them to immediately withdraw/recall/ take down the defamatory content published directly or indirectly by any one of them.
The content includes posts, messages, tweets, videos, interviews, communications and correspondence similar to the defamatory content in relation to Khan or his family members on all public domains and social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other mediums, and bot publish any further defamatory content.
The erroneous portrayal in the posts included stating that Khan was arrested and taken into unofficial custody of CBI.
The court order was passed by Justice V.V. Vidwan. Khan was represented by Counsel Pradeep Gandhi.
