In a shocking event for model turned actress Gauhar Khan, a man from the audience slapped her for wearing skimpy dress. Gauhar was shooting for a reality show at Film City in Goregaon Mumbai, when the unfortunate incident took place.
The man who was a staunch supporter of a community said, “being a Muslim woman, she should not have worn such a short dress”. This revelation came from Aarey Colony police who have registered the case and arrested the man.
Reports said that there were 250 bouncers present at the venue, which had 2,500 people as audience. Yet, the man managed to break the security cordon and get into an argument with Khan.
A source present on the spot informed, “While he was being escorted out of the place, he managed to go up on stage and slapped her. The source adds, “It was chaos after the security pulled the man away. Gauhar was shocked and was crying a lot. A stunned Gauhar didn’t understand what happened. Though the shooting was stopped, Gauhar took a break of an hour to gather her bearings and then reported back on stage to finish the leftover one hour shoot.”
Senior inspector at Aarey police station, Vilas Chavan, told that the accused was subsequently arrested and booked under IPC sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation). Mallick will be produced before the court tomorrow.
