Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan obtained a clean chit in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on a case of alleged surrogacy gender testing that is banned in India. The BMC informed the Bombay Higher Court on September twelve that an inquiry has discovered baseless the allegations leveled towards SRK and his wife Gauri of conducting pre-birth sex determination tests of their surrogate son AbRam. Justice Sadhana Jadhav was hearing a petition filed by social activist Varsha Deshpande for early hearing from the complaint filed by her in a magistrate court looking for action against the couple and others under the Pre-conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Methods (Prohibition of Intercourse Selection) Act.

The Mumbai Court also mentioned the only basis for the petitioner’s complaint was newspaper reports. The complainant alleged the civic officials had failed to take action against the couple and hence she moved the magistrate’s court with a fresh complaint. Earlier, Shah Rukh had rubbished allegations over the pre-natal gender exams on his third kid. The couple currently has two kids — Aryan and Suhana.
