A FIR was lodged again actor Kamal Rashid Khan in Versova Police Station in Mumbai for posting obscene messages and photos on micro-blogging site Twitter.

This came a month after lawyer Rizwan Siddique filed a complaint against the self-proclaimed critic for making lewd remarks against female models and actors on the social media platform. Siddique has requested to deactivate KRK’s Twitter handle.

In his statement, the Mumbai-based lawyer said, “On June 29, I was working in my office when i saw a tweet by actor Kamal Khan. There was an obscene photo and with it abhoring comments made by film maker and television actor KRK from his twitter handle @kamalrkhan”,” Siddique said.

The lawyer immediately downloaded the pictures and the write-ups and took print outs as evidence.

According to Siddique, Kamal Khan had tweeted against the following Bollywood stars: Parineeti Chopra, Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra, Asin, Ameesha Patel, Lisa Hayden, Mallika Sherawat, Vani Kapoor, Nargis Fakri and Sunny Leone.

While none of the actors complained or asked the lawyer to file a complaint, Rizwan took it upon himself after he felt that the tweets hurt the modesty of a woman.

According to some media reports, Maharashtra State Women Commission (MSWC) earlier took cognizance of the complaint and demanded action against Khan.

In a letter addressed to Mumbai’s Police Commissioner, Dattatray Padsalgikar on July 18, the MSWC requested authorities to probe the matter and take requisite action. The MSWC sent the letter a week after the National Commission of Women (NCW) issued a directive against the controversial actor.

Police have finally registered a complaint against the actor under sections 354, 354 A, 354 C, 354 D and 509 of the Indian Penal Code and is likely to summon him for questioning.
