Salman Khan refuses to apologise for ‘rape’ remark, says MSCW has no jurisdiction in the matter

Salman Khan and controversies go long back The last one added to the actor’s list was when he made an uncalled ‘rape’ analogy while talking about training session for his film Sultan. A news daily reports that he has refused to apologise for his offensive comment, despite being summoned by the National Commission for Women (NCW) as well as the Maharashtra State Commission for Women (MSCW).

According to media reports, Salman filed his response to the notice issued by MSCW, saying that it does not have the jurisdiction to take up the case.

The actor has failed to appear before the Maharashtra Commission for Women (MSCW) and the National Commission for women (NCW) twice – after the panel summoned him in connection with his “raped woman” remark. The second hearing date was on Eid, failing to appear on that date, a third summon was issued by MSCW.

The Dabangg actor had been asked to appear before the body today, July 14. Failing to have a hearing on Eid, MSCW had said “Today, Salman was asked to come for the hearing at 4:30 PM. However, he didn’t appear, nor did his lawyer. But we received a letter from his side where he said that since he has been summoned by NCW (National Commission for Women) too, there should be no duplicity.”
