Mumbai: Adding to the worries of actor Salman Khan, a survivor of a gang rape in Hisar on Saturday has served a Rs 10-crore damage notice on him while asking him to tender a public apology over his alleged remark about rape victims, reports the Times of India. The notice has been sent to Salman’s West Mumbai’s Bandra address.
Last week, the actor made a remark linked to rape victims during a show. The remarks had gone viral on TV, print and social media. The actor had even clarified later and tendered an apology.
Reshma (name changed) fell prey to a group of 10 goons who allegedly raped her after kidnapping her in Hisar four years ago. Following this, the victim’s father had even committed suicide.
Four out of 10 accused have been sentenced with life imprisonment and the victim has moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking death penalty for them.
“My client has felt and is passing through very troublesome period of psychological trauma by heart and mind by your statement of the rape victims-like feelings in the print media and social media. Your statement dated 21-06-2016 is solely responsible for her mental and psychological degradation and she is in touch with psychiatrist for counselling,” the legal notice read as further.
“Your statement dated 21-06-2016 is wrong, illegal and against the spirit of Constitution of India and you are liable for every type of civil, criminal liabilities,” the notice served by lawyer said further.
