Indian actor, producer, writer and self-acclaimed critic Kamal Rashid Khan aka KRK has been sent to 14-day judicial custody after he was presented before a court in the Borivali area today. KRK was detained at the Mumbai airport and arrested by the authorities post questioning in relation to a controversial tweet posted by him two years back.
An FIR was lodged by Yuva Sena’s core committee member Rahul Kanal for a tweet the actor-critic made two years ago and he was arrested under Sections 153A, 294, 500, 501, 505, 67 and 98 of the IPC. “On April 30, Khan had allegedly taken to Twitter to announce Rishi Kapoor’s hospitalisation and tweeted saying that the actor must not die as wine shops were set to open soon,” a police officer told PTI.
Kamal Rashid Khan has been one of the most controversial internet personalities and he remains in the news for one reason or another. Known for his derogatory comments about everything under the sun, a lookout circular had earlier been issued against the actor and he was arrested on his way back from Dubai.
The police official also stated that an FIR was also registered against him in 2020 under various Indian Penal Code sections including 153 (wantonly giving provocation with intent to cause riot) and 500 (punishment for defamation), and provisions of the Information Technology Act.
