Another celeb gets into trouble with the cops. Choreographer Salman Khan, winner of the first season of Dance India Dance, had a nasty experience on his way back from the shoot of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa.
He narrates, “My auto rickshaw guy didn't have a licence, so he didn't stop when he saw the 'nakabandi' and speeded up the rickshaw, so the cop hit the windshield with a 'lathi'. When the constable hit the windshield, the driver jumped out and started running."
He further adds, "I waited outside the auto till the constable caught hold of the driver and brought him back. I was appalled to see the constable thrashing the auto driver. When I protested, the cop and the biker then proceeded to attack me, claiming that the auto driver had speeded up on my instructions”
The incident has left the actor shaken. “I was traumatised and was in a state of shock post the incident. In fact, yesterday I was running all around and met a few cops to sort the issue out. I am still in a state of shock trying to get back to normal life," said Salman, adding, "I have nothing against the cop. My only issue was that the cop on duty was drunk. But I owe a big thank you to Mr. Himanshu Roy, joint commissioner of police (crime), who helped us a lot and took it to the next level.“
Affirming the lodged complaint, the senior inspector of police, Arun Jadhav informed, “Salman Yusuf Khan has filed a complaint against a constable named Suresh Gurav on Monday evening. We have recorded his statement and sent the reports to the superior to take action against him. We are waiting for the reply.”
We only hope things turn out well for all parties!
