Bombay HC annuls FIRs against Sahil Khan

Mumbai: On September 15, the Bombay High Court quashed two FIRs registered in Mumbai against actor Sahil Khan in 2015 on a complaint filed by Ayesha Shroff, the wife of veteran Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff, over allegations of cheating and criminal intimidation.

A bench of Justices S S Shinde and N J Jamadar quashed the two FIRs which were registered by the Bandra police, after Khan's lawyer and Ayesha Shroff told the court on September 15 that they had settled the dispute between them amicably.

Ayesha told the high court that while she had also raised an issue of non-payment of dues by Khan worth over Rs 4 crore in her complaint, she had decided not to pursue the claim or any other allegations made in the two FIRs.

The bench accepted statements of both the parties and quashed the two FIRs, noting that the case seemed to have arisen out of a 'business dispute'.

It, however, imposed a cost of Rs 1 lakh on Khan and said the money will go to the Maharashtra child welfare committee for the 'welfare of children under the state's care'.

Sahil Khan is best known for his work in the Bollywood film 'Style'.
