Bollywood actress Soha Ali Khan is in the news again for wrong
reasons. Gurgaon District Magistrate Rakesh Gupta has cancelled the
arms licence issued to Soha in November 1996, as she was under-aged
when she got the licence.
She was only 18 years old when she got the arms licence but a
person has to reach 21 years to get it under the Arms Act. However,
no action has been taken against her, as the original file relating
to the licence has gone missing. Her gun licence became a hot topic
of discussion when her father Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi was caught
using her rifle to kill blackbuck.
Soha's counsel V Bhushan Arya is trying his best to get the licence
back. He said that it was the duty of the police to check and
verify Soha's age at the time of applying, as she didn't hide her
age in any way.
