Bollywood actor Sahil Khan has found himself caught amid the ongoing investigation into the Mahadev betting app case. Khan, like celebrities like Hina Khan, Kapil Sharma, Huma Qureshi, and Shraddha Kapoor, was summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) earlier this month for questioning. In a recent development, the actor has taken a proactive step by filing a plea at the Bombay High Court, seeking the quashing of the FIR registered against him in connection with the case.
Sahil Khan approaches Bombay High Court for quashing of FIR in online betting app case: Report
This move comes after Khan’s pre-arrest bail plea was rejected by the sessions court in December. As per reports, the court cited “considerable evidence” as the reason for its decision. As per a report by Free Press Journal, Khan has approached the High Court, vehemently denying any involvement with any betting app. In his plea, he has termed the FIR against him as “wrong, false, bogus, illegal, and filed with malafide intentions.” His counsel has further stated that Khan has no connection to any illegal activities.
The High Court is expected to hear the matter in February 2024. Meanwhile, Khan has requested a stay on the ongoing investigation against him until then, along with a restraining order to prevent any coercive action by the police.
