Only a few weeks ago, Salman Khan was mired in a controversy on the reality show Bigg Boss 11 which he hosts, when one of the evicted contestants Zubair Khan filed a complaint against the Bollywood superstar, accusing him of threatening on the show. Now, a woman named Shabnam Sheikh has filed an FIR against Salman’s bodyguard Shera accusing him of a gang rape threat, reports India Today.
According to the report, Shabnam claims that Shera asked her to settle the Zubair Khan case. She further said that Salman’s bodyguard threatened her with gang rape if she doesn’t settle the case.
The FIR was lodged at the Khar police station and has been filed under Section 509 of the Indian Penal Code. The police has already started probing the matter.
However, Shera refuted all such allegations and denied knowing or meeting Shabnam.
Zubair Khan was said to be a distant relative of underworld kingpin Dawood Ibrahim. In one of the episodes, Salman lashed at him for his unpleasant behaviour, especially with other room mates. He called Zubair names like “nalle ka don” (don of the gutter) and said that he “will make him a dog”, reports India Today.
In a report by India Today, dated 9 October, Zubair had spoken about how Salman allegedly disrespected him on the show.
“I give Salman an open challenge — do what you want to do. I will fight against him till the end. Usse shauk hai logon ki beizzati karne ka. I did not say anything in the Bigg Boss [house] because I didn’t want to disrespect him in the front of camera, but he disrespected me. Colors channel has spoiled my image [by saying] that I am some don’s relative, I won’t name him. I am only a film producer and an undercover reporter. I am part of the journalist fraternity,” said Zubair.
