Arbaaz Khan takes a legal action against social media users over defamatory allegations

Actor and producer Arbaaz Khan has filed a defamation case against some social media users in a civil court in Mumbai. Khan filed the case after his name was involved in Sushant Singh Rajput and his manager Disha Salian's alleged suicide case.

The court on September 28 had asked defendants Vibhor Anand, Sakshi Bhandari, and unknown defendants to withdraw, recall or takedown defamatory content related to Arbaaz Khan. The defamatory content includes posts, messages, videos, tweets, interviews, communications, and correspondence on social media platforms related to Khan and his family members.

Some posts also include misinformation such as Khan being arrested and taken into unofficial custody by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). After watching these posts, the Bollywood actor moved to the court against these social media users.

A few days ago, Arbaaz along with his family was accused of sabotaging director Abhinav Kashyap's career. Kashyap had directed Dabangg, which starred Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha.

In a Facebook post, Kashyap also targeted the Khan brothers - Arbaaz, Salman, and Sohail of finishing his career. Arbaaz and Sohail had also filed a defamation case against Abhinav     

Currently, the Sushant Singh Rajput case is being investigated by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), and Enforcement Directorate(ED). Rajput was found hanging from the ceiling fan at his home in Bandra, Mumbai. The actor's manager reportedly committed suicide by jumping from the 14th floor of her apartment in Malad, Mumbai, just days before.

BJP leader Narayan Rane had alleged that Disha didn't die by jumping from her apartment but was raped and murdered instead. The BJP leader also claimed that Disha's autopsy report says that she had injury marks on her private parts. Many internet users have also accused Aditya Thackeray of being involved in the Salian's murder, but later on, Thackeray responded to the allegations by claiming it as dirty politics by the opposition.   

Presently, Sushant's former girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty are in Byculla jail over drug charges. On September 26 Bollywood actresses Deepika Padukone, Rakulpreet Singh, Shraddha Kapoor, and Sara Ali Khan were also summoned by the NCB in connection with drugs case. Padukone and Kapoor were named by Karishma Prakash and Rajput's former talent manager Jaya Saha.

Recently, the NCB also seized the phones of Padukone, Singh, and Prakash under the Indian Evidence Act.
