A court in Andheri has asked the airport police to register an FIR against actor Salman Khan for criminal intimidation and robbery.

The court’s directive came on a complaint filed by Ravindra Moorat Dwivedi, a member of Brashtachaar Nirmoolan Samiti, who had alleged that Salman Khan and his bodyguard had assaulted him aboard a Mumbai-Delhi flight on November 4 last year.

“Dwivedi said he was carrying important documents regarding the demise of BJP leader Gopinath Munde, which he was supposed to hand over to the government. During the flight, Dwivedi alleged, Salman Khan along with his bodyguard Vishal got into a fight with him and snatched the documents from him,” R C Nagbhire, senior inspector with the airport police, said.
