In 2019, a horrific incident left everyone shocked and scared. Two years ago, a girl was brutally raped, killed, and burnt alive by four men in Hyderabad. The incident is still fresh in the minds of the people as it had created a lot of stir.
At that point in time, not just commoners, even the Indian celebrities had expressed their sadness over the matter and had taken to social media to show the same and some even revealed the name of the victim. And now, that has put them in legal trouble.
As per the latest reports, a case has been registered against 38 Indian celebrities including Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Rakul Preet Singh, and others for revealing the identity of the rape victim on social media. The case is against 38 film celebrities from Tollywood and Bollywood.
As per the law, it is unethical to use the real name of rape victims in media or any public platform and now, a Delhi-based lawyer has filed the case. The case has been filed against Anupam Kher, Farhan Akhtar, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Maharaja Ravi Teja, Rakul Preet Singh, Allu Sirish, Charmme Kaur, and other celebs by lawyer Gaurav Gulati.
Reportedly, Gaurav filed a complaint regarding the same in Sabzi Mandi Police Station under IPC section 228 A and also filed a petition in Tees Hazari Court. In his complaint, the Delhi-based lawyer said that instead of setting an example for others, Indian celebrities of such big stature forgot their moral ethics and mentioned the real name of the victim without any social responsibility.
Gaurav has now reportedly sought an immediate arrest of all the above celebrities, alleging that they have shown no social responsibility with regard to maintaining the privacy of the victim.
