Salman Khan, one of Bollywood's biggest celebrities, has appealed the Sessions Court's earlier decision to not issue a restraining order against his NRI neighbor Ketan Kakkar at their Panvel home. Salman claimed that Ketan had made multiple defamatory postings against him on social media in his petition to the High Court. He continued by saying that Ketan's statements are not only defamatory and disparaging of him but also racially biased and cause division among the community. On August 22, a single judge bench of the Bombay High Court presided over by Justice CV Bhadang, will hear the case.
In a previous defamation action brought by Salman due to the former's social media remarks, the Sessions Court declined to issue an injunction order against Ketan in March. On March 23, Sessions Court Judge AH Laddhad delivered his decision; the specifics of the decision's order followed. As a whistle-blower, Ketan had filed complaints and show-cause notices against Salman about claims that the actor had encroached on his property, a 100-acre farm in Panvel, in the public interest. This was underlined in the decision
Notably, Ketan has claimed that in 1995, he and his wife purchased a specific plot of land close to Salman's property with the idea of constructing a home, ashram, temple, etc. In addition, Ketan claimed that Sa had asked for and worked with Sa to have the Maharashtra forest department purportedly delete the piece of land that had been assigned to him. He further asserted that a gate had been put up to prevent access to his illegally acquired plot of land and to prohibit it from leaving.
Salman said in his complaint that the defendants are actively inciting racial violence and anti-Hindu-Muslim prejudice by making aggressive, deceptive, and based on religious arguments that are entirely irrelevant and absurd.
