While tweeting he said, ‘I am KRK’s son Faizal Kamal. Some people are torturing me to kill my father in Mumbai. I am 23 years old and live in London. I don’t know how to help my father. I request @juniorbachchan @ritesh and @dev_fadnavis ji to save my father’s life. Me and my sister will die without him.’

Faizal said in his second tweet, ‘Because he is my life. I appeal to the public to support my father to save his life. We don’t want him to die like Sushant Singh Rajput #WeStandWithKRK.
KRK got conditional bail
KRK got conditional bail. The court stipulated that, ‘the accused is directed to be released on a personal bond of Rs 15,000 in equal cash surety. The accused shall be present at the concerned police station on second and fourth Mondays from 10 am to 11 am till the charge sheet is filed or 60 days, whichever is less. Besides, the court also said, ‘The defendants will not have any contact with the prosecution evidence or witnesses. Also the accused will not leave the city of Mumbai without the permission of the court.
The court made a thoughtful decision
The Borivali Magistrate, while granting bail to KRK, said, ‘I have deliberately considered it on competing written and oral grounds. In fact, the offense registered on the basis of the alleged tweets made by the accused dates back to 2020. The prosecution has not produced any incident as a result of the alleged tweets made by the accused. Currently, the maximum penalty for this offense can be reduced or extended to seven years. Therefore, in view of the present trend the accused must be entitled to bail subject to certain conditions for granting bail in such cases.
