Case registered against Salman Khan, Farhan Akhtar for revealing rape victim’s identity

The complainant, a lawyer who filed the case, said that these celebrities forgot ethics and revealed the real name of the victim irresponsibly

Film personalities Salman Khan and Farhan Akhtar are in trouble for revealing the name of the of the rape incident that shook the nation two years ago. The horrific incident had everyone shocked in the year 2019 when a of Hyderabad was brutally raped and then set on fire by four men who had dragged her away from a toll plaza to Chatanpally, Shadnagar. All the suspects were arrested and killed in an alleged encounter at the exact spot where she was murdered.

Celebrities and commoners alike had organised protests and candle marches at the time. Apparently, some of them did not care for the law.

A case has been filed against 38 Indian celebrities from and Tollywood including Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Salman Khan, Rakul Preet Singh, Anupam Kher, Farhan Akhtar, Maharaja Ravi Teja, Allu Sirish, Charmme Kaur, among others for revealing the identity of the victim on social media.

A Delhi-based lawyer Gaurav Gulati filed the case under Section 228 A of the Indian Penal Code at the Sabzi Mandi Police Station. He filed a petition at the Tis Hazari court.

Gulati in his complaint said that these Indian celebrities forgot ethics and revealed the real name of the without any social responsibility — rather than setting an example for others.

According to the law, it is unethical to use the real name of rape victims in media or any public platform.

“No person can print or publish in print, electronic, social media, etc. the name of the or even in a remote manner disclose any facts which can lead to the victim being identified,” a bench of justices (now retired) Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta had said then.”The bar extends to anything which can even remotely be used to identify the victim.”

Gulati has demanded an immediate arrest of the celebrities named by him as they failed to maintain the of the and showed no social responsibility.
