Court’s decision on KRK’s bail
Kamal R Khan got bail in molestation case and defamatory tweet case. He came out of jail on Thursday, 8 September. The Borivali magistrate, while granting bail to KRK, said, “I have deliberately considered the opponent on both written and oral grounds. Actually, the crime registered on the basis of the alleged tweet made by the accused is of the year 2020. The prosecution did not come up with any incident that occurred as a result of the alleged tweet by the accused. The maximum punishment for a major offense in the present offense is less or which may extend to seven years. Therefore, considering the present trend of granting bail in such cases, surely the accused deserves to be released on bail on certain conditions.”
The court, while imposing conditions, said, “The accused is directed to be released on bail on executing a personal bond of Rs 15,000 with surety or cash surety of like amount.” The accused will have to be present at the police station concerned on the second and fourth Monday between 10 am and 11 am till the filing of the charge sheet or for 60 days, whichever is less. The court further said, “The accused shall not tamper with the prosecution evidence or approach the witnesses, the accused shall not leave the city of Mumbai without the permission of the court.”
Kamal R Khan is often in the headlines for his statements on Bollywood. He has worked in many Hindi and Bhojpuri films and has also produced some projects. He was also a part of Bigg Boss 3.
