Actress Sunny Leone is "emotionally and mentally disturbed" after Kamaal R Khan (KRK) claimed that she had made the controversial statement - "Rape is not a crime, it's just a surprise". The actress has now filed an FIR against KRK.
"Sunny is emotionally and mentally very disturbed with the false allegations levied by Kamaal Khan against her, and the cheap and demeaning jokes that he is continuously posting on his twitter account in her name, thereby outraging her modesty openly on a public platform," Rizwan Siddiquee, lawyer of the actress said.
"Resultantly, she has been crying inconsolably and is not in a proper frame of mind to even talk to the media with regard to such built-up controversies surrounding her," Rizwan Siddiquee said.
He added: "As the acts committed by Kamaal Khan are largely cognizable, to protect her legitimate rights and interest we have filed an FIR under Sections 500, 504, 509 of the Indian Penal Code together with Section 66 A of the Information Technology Act 2000. The said FIR was registered with the Versova police station on Feb 12. The police will accordingly investigate the matter at the earliest and proceed accordingly."
Following KRK's comments, Sunny Leone had filed a complaint with the Cyber Crime Investigation Cell of the Mumbai Police February 4.
However, the small-time actor continued tweeting against the actress, forcing her to file an FIR against him. It could lead to Kamaal's arrest.
