Rape remark: Salman Khan skips  date with women's commission

The Maharashtra State Commission for Women (MSCW) on Thursday issued fresh summons to actor Salman Khan after he failed to appear before it for the second time. Khan was summoned to explain his ‘raped woman’  remark.  

On June 22, the MSCW asked Khan to appear on June 29. However, he did not oblige and instead sent a legal reply, following which he was asked to be present on July 7. 

"He has been summoned again on July 14," MSCW chairperson Vijaya Rahatkar said, adding, “We can summon a person thrice and this is his (Khan’s) third summons.” 

On both occasions, the actor, through his legal team, had pointed out that since the matter is before the National Commission for Women, there would be duplication.

In an interaction ahead of the release of his movie ‘Sultan’, in which he plays a wrestler, Khan had said: "While shooting, during those six hours, there’d be so much lifting and thrusting on the ground.

That was tough for me because if I was lifting, I’d have to lift the same 120-kilo guy 10 times from 10 different angles. And likewise, get thrown that many times on the ground. When I used to walk out of the ring after the shoot, I used to feel like a raped woman. I couldn’t walk straight. I would eat and then head right back to training. That couldn’t stop."
