Salman Khan, who had recently approached the High Court to get a contempt of court case quashed against him, has been granted relief by the High Court, claim sources.
Salman Khan’s lawyer argued that the 2002 hit-and-run case involving the actor had been committed to Sessions Court and hence, the magistrate had no jurisdiction to issue notice to him on the contempt case submitted against him by activist Hemant Patil. After this argument, the High Court has stayed the procedures against the actor.
Hemant Patil had submitted a case to the magistrate court, alleging that Salman Khan’s actions of posting court orders in cases against him on his website, came to contempt of court. In his protection, Salman Khan had claimed that he had developed the website to make sure that there was no wrong reporting relating to his court cases by the press.
