An FIR was registered against Salman Yusuff Khan at the Oshiwara police station in Mumbai. He has been accused of molestation.
The alleged victim, also a dancer, levelled allegations of molestation against Salman and his brother, in her complaint. She accused Salman of having behaved with her inappropriately on two separate occasions.
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.
