Actor Ejaz Khan gets bail in objectionable post case

PTI, Apr 24, 2020, 4:42 PM IST

Mumbai: A court here on Friday granted bail to actor and former Bigg Boss contestant Ejaz Khan, who was arrested for allegedly uploading an objectionable post on Facebook.

Khan was arrested last week by Khar police in connection with the comment made during a Facebook live session.

He has been charged under section 153A and others of the IPC for promoting enmity among communities.

Appearing on behalf of Khan, Naznin Khatri told the court that section 153 A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language) was not applicable in such cases.

She submitted four Supreme Court judgments in support of her argument. Khatri also told the court that the actor did not speak against any religion, but only criticized politicians in the Facebook post.

Accepting her submissions, metropolitan magistrate S N Shinde granted bail to Khan on a surety of Rs 1 lakh.

He has been told to remain home quarantined for 15 days. Khan was also arrested in July last year for posting objectionable videos that could have caused enmity among communities, police had said at that time.

“In October 2018, he was held for allegedly possessing banned drugs,” police said.
