Television journalist and head of JK24x7 news channel, Ashok S. Pandey has lodged a criminal complaint against Bollywood actor Salman Khan and his associates accusing him of assault, threat, abuse and others. He filed the criminal case before the 10th Court, Andheri, against Salman Khan, his aide Vijay and another unknown person.

As per the complaint file, the incident took place in the wee hours of April 24 as Salman was seen riding a bicycle escorted by two bodyguards. Ashok S. Pandey revealed that he was driving a car and on spotting the actor he started recording a video after he took the consent of Khan's bodyguards. But Salman got angry and his bodyguards than came after him and started thrashing him. He even stated that Salman too assaulted him and even snatched his phone away. He was also threatened by the trio with dire consequences.

He now approached the court as the police disposed of his complaint and said no crime was made out. His lawyer said, "The matter will come up for hearing on July 12. At that time, the court will decide whether the police will be directed to conduct an investigation, or issue summons to the accused."

In the meanwhile, Ashok S. Pandey was also approached by Salman's representative named Zohaib, who called him and reportedly admitted to the misbehaviour and further requested him to settle the matter. But he refused to any settlement. He requests the court to get a detailed inquiry and take suitable action under the law against Salman for the alleged offences.
