Two years ago, a horrible incident took place in the outskirts of Hyderabad, where an innocent doctor was raped, killed, and burnt alive by four men and those horrendous memories are still fresh in the minds of the people. Now, a case has been filed by a Delhi-based lawyer, requesting the arrest of 38 film celebrities from Tollywood and Bollywood for revealing the real name of the rape victim on social media platforms.
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 who mentioned the real name of the victim while tweeting about the incident. This was in direct conflict with a court judgment that prohibits the use of a rape victims’ name on any public platform.
According to the latest report, a Delhi-based lawyer Gaurav Gulati has filed a complaint against the celebrities regarding the same in Sabzi Mandi Police Station under IPC section 228 A and also has filed a petition in Tees Hazari Court, alleging that these celebrities were not being responsible citizens.
Gulati accused the celebrities of revealing the name of the rape victim despite the law prohibiting the act. The case has been filed as the celebs instead of setting an example for others by not publicizing the victim’s name, have themselves broken the rule by revealing her real identity on social media platforms. Therefore the lawyer has reportedly sought an immediate arrest of all the above celebs, alleging that they have shown no social responsibility while maintaining the privacy of the victim.
