Indore, Feb 22 (UNI) A local court today stayed an arrest warrant issued by it on February 20 against Bollywood actor-turned-producer Aamir Khan in a case relating to dishonour of the national flag.
Khan's counsel Pankaj Bagdiya submitted, to Judicial Magistrate Fayyaz Khan, a Madhya Pradesh High Court Indore bench order allowing the actor reprieve from appearing in person.
Judicial Magistrate V S Mubel issued a warrant in October 2007.
At that time Khan's lawyers obtained the reprieve from the High Court. The actor has secured anticipatory bail. March 25 was set as the next date for hearing.
Khan attended a programme here on August 16, 2007 for publicising a Toyota vehicle. Mr Shailendra Sharma complained in court against the actor, the vehicle's distributor, programme organisers Rakesh and Ashok Rajpal alleging that the tricolour was dishonoured during the programme. A first information report was registered against the Rajpal brothers.
