Kamal R Khan, aka KRK, was arrested at Mumbai International Airport on August 30 for allegedly disparaging tweets and detained by the Borivali magistrate court.

A Mumbai court has granted bail to actor Kamaal R Khan, commonly known as KRK, in a 2021 molestation case registered against him by suburban Versova police. However, in the case of controversial tweets about actor Akshay Kumar and filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma in 2020, Khan will remain in jail as his bail request is pending before the Borivali magistrate court. His bail request in the tweet case is scheduled to be heard by the Borivali metropolitan magistrate court on Wednesday (September 7).

Khan was arrested at Mumbai International Airport on August 30 on suspicion of making a derogatory tweet and was sent to judicial custody by the Borivali magistrate court. The Versova police detained him on Sunday in a molestation case and he appeared before the Bandra court.

In a bail petition filed in the Bandra magistrate court by attorneys Ashok Sarogi and Jay Yadav, Khan claimed that the contents of the First Information Report (FIR) were in fact inconsistent with the molestation case.

Advocate Yadav argued in court that the FIR was registered 18 months after the incident and even after the victim’s friend asked her to do so.  He further argued that the section of the Indian Penal Code that was invoked against Khan was available. The court upheld Khan’s contention. The exact order was not yet available.

The molestation case was registered in June 2021 based on the complaint of a 27-year-old female under Section 354(A) (sexual harassment such as unwanted physical contact) and Section 509 (words or gestures intended to violate the modesty of any woman) of the IPC.

The complaint alleged that Khan called her to his bungalow in Versova on the pretext of offering her the lead role in the film and according to the FIR, he spiked her drink and touched her inappropriately. According to police, tweets Khan posted in 2020 were communal and targeted Bollywood personalities. He was booked in 2020 under Section 153 (giving provocation with intent to cause riots) and Section 500 (punishment for defamation) and other provisions of the IPC and Information Technology Act.
