An FIR has been registered against actor Kamaal R Khan in suburban Bandra for posting offensive tweets about deceased actors Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor.

"The FIR was registered on Wednesday based on a complaint which was lodged by Yuva Sena’s core committee member Rahul Kanal regarding derogatory tweets posted by the actor, an official said. On April 30, Khan had allegedly taken to Twitter to announce Rishi Kapoor's hospitalisation and tweeted saying that the actor must not die as wine shops were set to open soon. He had also allegedly taken pot-shots at Irrfan Khan, a day before his death on April 29," an official reportedly mentioned. Rishi Kapoor died of leukemia on 30 April, 2020, less than a day after Irrfan Khan died of a colon infection.

According to a police official, an FIR has been registered against Kamal R Khan for making derogatory remarks about both the deceased actors under section 294 (punishment for obscene acts or words in public) and other provisions of the IPC. Further investigation of the matter is currently underway.
