An FIR has been lodged against actor Kamaal R Khan also known as KRK at Bandra in Mumbai for his derogatory tweets about late actors Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan. The FIR was registered on the basis of a complaint by Yuva Sena’s core committee member Rahul Kanal.
KRK had allegedly taken to Twitter on April 30 to announce Rishi Kapoor’s hospitalization. In the tweet, he had said that Kapoor must not die as wine shops (closed due to the lockdown) were all set to open. KRK had also allegedly taken pot-shots at Irrfan Khan, a day before his death on April 29.
Kamaal R Khan has been booked by the police under Section 294 (punishment for obscene acts or words in public) and other relevant sections of the IPC.
