In the year 2019, a tragic occurrence startled and terrified everyone. A girl was brutally raped, killed, and burned alive by four guys in Hyderabad.. The incident is still vivid in people’s memories because it caused such a commotion. At the moment, not only commoners but also Indian celebrities expressed their anguish over the incident and took to social media to demonstrate it, with some even revealing the victim’s name. And now they’re in legal problems as a result of it.
According to recent reports, 38 Indian celebrities, including Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Rakul Preet Singh, and others, have been charged for disclosing the identity of the rape victim on social media. The lawsuit involves 38 Tollywood and Bollywood film celebrities.
According to the law, it is immoral to use the true names of rape victims in the media or on any public platform, and a Delhi-based lawyer has recently filed a complaint in this regard. Lawyer Gaurav Gulati has filed a complaint against actors Anupam Kher, Farhan Akhtar, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Maharaja Ravi Teja, Rakul Preet Singh, Allu Sirish, Charmme Kaur, and others.
According to reports, Gaurav filed a complaint with the Sabzi Mandi Police Station under IPC section 228 A, as well as a petition with the Tees Hazari Court. The Delhi-based lawyer claimed that instead of setting an example for others, Indian celebrities of such great prominence abandoned their moral standards and mentioned the victim’s real identity without any sense of social duty in his complaint.
Gaurav has reportedly demanded the immediate arrest of all of the aforementioned celebrities, stating that they have exhibited no social duty in safeguarding the victim’s privacy.
