Sultan Salman Khan skips personal appearance before women’s panel over ‘rape’ remark



Actor Salman Khan on Thursday skipped personal appearance for the third time before the Maharashtra State Commission for Women (MSCW), but sent a letter to the panel in response to the summons issued to him over his ‘rape’ remarks.

The content of the letter was not yet known.

The MSCW, which had asked Salman to appear before it on Thursday, said they are consulting their legal department regarding the actor’s letter.

“We have received the letter. We are studying it now. We have sent it to our legal department and will decide the future course of action,” MSCW Chairperson Vijaya Rahatkar told reporters.

She, however, did not reveal the contents of the letter or if any action will be taken by the MSCW regarding the controversy.

Khan had recently landed himself in controversy for his statement that he felt like a “raped woman” after the grueling shoot for his film “Sultan”, in which he plays a wrestler.

The 50-year-old actor was asked to come for hearing on two previous occasions, but he did not turn up. Subsequently, he was asked appear before the commission today.
