Another Day, Another Complaint: TV Journalist Files A Case Against Salman Bhai

Bollywood’s favourite bad boy, Salman Khan is in news again. This time around, a television journalist has filed a case against him for allegedly snatching his phone. Over the thirty years that he has spent in the industry, he has garnered the reputation of a troublemaker.  

As per reports, senior journalist Ashok Pandey has filed several cases against Salman Bhai for robbery, assault, criminal mischief and criminal intimidation under sections 323, 392, 426, 506, r/w 34 of the Indian Penal Code for snatching his mobile phone while the Dabangg actor was cycling in the city in April.

Sharing the details of the incident, the journalist said that Salman was snapped by the media after they sought his bodyguard's permission. However, the actor wanted some privacy and didn’t want shutterbugs around. This led to a huge argument between the paparazzi and Salman.

Ashok, the complainant claims that Salman's bodyguards misbehaved with him and his camera person, following which the actor snatched his phone.  

Contrary to Ashok’s complaint, there have been reports stating that Salman had gestured all gathered media-persons to not click pictures or record videos. On not complying to his request, he snapped at the camera people.


“Client's advocate, Neeraj Gupta has claimed that Salman Khan had deleted all the data from the journalist's phone and added that the police had not taken proper cognisance of the initial complaint, hence they are now knocking on the doors of the court,” claimed a report in a leading daily.

If any of this is true, Salman seems to have taken an extreme measure against the journalist to express his displeasure over being clicked.

Remember the incident that took place at the venue of Bharat’s screening? Salman lost his calm and slapped a security guard for manhandling one of his young female fans.

The incident was recorded and the video went viral. In the clip, Salman is seen walking, surrounded by his bodyguards. He suddenly stopped, gave a death stare to one of the security guards for manhandling a young girl and slapped him right across his face.

Will this incident finally make Salman check his attitude? We can only hope...
