A First Information Report (FIR) was lodged against Dance India Dance Season 1 winner Salman Yusuff Khan. He was allegedly accused of molestation and also for behaving inappropriately with a dancer.

The alleged victim, also a dancer, has levelled accusations against Salman and his brother for molesting her on two separate occasions.

However, Salman has denied all these allegations. On his official Instagram account, he wrote, "Wrong allegations with vested interests. The intent of extorting monies. Have complete faith in the judiciary. Truth with prevail. Insha Allah."

As per the FIR registered, Salman's manager had approached the woman at the time she was in London for some work in August last year. She later met with the dancer at a coffee shop in Andheri where he proposed to her the opportunity to perform with him at Bollywood Park in Dubai.

The woman alleged that the accused touched her inappropriately on the same day when he offered to drop her home. However, Salman claimed that such things happen in Bollywood after the victim objected to his behaviour.

The complaint further went on to state that she later received a call from Salman's manager regarding the work and she left for Dubai, along with her dance group, on August 20, 2018. She alleged that Salman asked her to accompany him to Bahrain for another show on August 30, 2018, while they were still in Dubai.

Salman allegedly introduced the victim to his cousin brother at the airport, who joined him and touched her inappropriately while on their journey back to Dubai via car. This incident took place on November 03, 2018.

She further claimed that after the incident, Salman along with his team continued to harass her and her troupe for days and even threatened her of dire consequences. Salman allegedly forcibly made them terminate their contracts and sent her and her troupe back to Mumbai on November 10, 2018.

It was these harrowing incidents of harassment that compelled the woman to lodge a case against the dancer and his cousin.
