New Delhi:

In more trouble for Salman Khan, a young woman from Hisar, who was gangraped by 10 men in Haryana, has slapped a legal notice on the actor. In the notice, the gangrape victim has asked Salman to apologise for his rape remark, which sparked huge controversy. She has also sought Rs 10 crore in damages from the actor for mocking rape victims.

She has sent the notice through her counsel to Salman at his Galaxy Apartments address in Mumbai’s upscale Bandra area. The victim has said in the notice that Salman joked about the plight of rape victims by comparing an difficult action sequence to the status of a gangraped woman.

Four years ago, 10 people had abducted and gangraped the woman in Hisar. The assaulters were awarded life term by a court, while the victim seeks death penalty for the accused. The gangrape victim’s father had committed suicide following the incident.

Asked how he felt after the shooting of Sultan, Salman had responded saying he felt like a “raped woman” and could barely stand straight after the shoot. The statement invited sharp criticism on social media after which the actor’s father Salim Khan apologised on his behalf.
