Seems like Kamal Rashid Khan's (KRK) troubles are far from over. 

Last week, within hours of getting arrested, Kamal Rashid Khan had to be rushed to the hospital.

The actor-turned-film critic, who has now adpoted his wife's surname and goes by the name kamal Rashid Kumar, complained of chest pain after he was arrested over his 2020 tweets about Akshay Kumar and Ram Gopal Verma. The Mumbai City Police said that his tweets were of communal nature and aimed at Bollywood personalities.

As per a news report by news agency ANI, Kamal has been admitted to Shatabdi hospital in Mumbai after complaining of chest pain in the evening following his arrest. KRK was sent to a 14-day judicial custody by the Borivali court after his arrest.

"Maharashtra | Kamal Rashid Khan was brought to Shatabdi Hospital in the Kandivali area of ​​Mumbai today evening after he complained of having chest pain. He was arrested by Malad Police in Mumbai today, over his controversial tweet in 2020," ANI had mentioned in their tweet.

Now, according to a report shared by news agency ANI, the controversial actor and film has been arrested by Versova Police for allegedly demanding sexual favours from an actor-model-singer back in 2019.

AS per a tweet on ANI's official Twitter handle, the Versova Police arrested him by transfer order of 24th MM Court, Borivali, Mumbai. He was produced in court on September 3, where he was remanded in 14-day judicial custody. 

The complainant informed the police that she had met the accused in 2017 at a party where he had introduced himself as a movie producer. Khan then, allegedly, went on to promise her a role in a film with Emraan Hashmi. He also passed leud comments about her over the phone.

"Kamaal Rashid Khan was arrested by Versova Police for demanding sexual favours & holding the complainant’s hand in the first week of January 2019. Versova Police arrested him by transfer order of 24th MM Court, Borivali, Mumbai: Versova Police," ANI tweeted. 

After arriving from Dubai late Monday night, Khan was apprehended at the Mumbai airport, according to a Malad police station official. The police withheld the specifics of the tweet. The officer claimed that he had previously been the target of a watch list.

According to him, a FIR was also filed against him in 2020 under the terms of the Information Technology Act as well as sections 153 (wantonly offering provocation with intent to incite riot) and 500 (punishment for defamation) of the Indian Penal Code.

The official claimed that as soon as the city police learned of his arrival on Monday, they promptly apprehended him.

Khan stated in 2016 that he had received payment for tweeting in support of a Karan Johar movie. One of Kamaal R. Khan's trademarks is his contentious tweets. After a charge was filed against KRK for his social media attacks on Irrfan and Rishi Kapoor in 2020, he was taken into custody. KRK was the subject of a lookout notice, which was followed by the filing of an FIR against him in 2020. Rahul Kanal, a member of the Yuva Sena, filed the complaint. He will be presented today, August 30, at 11 p.m. in Borivali court. He was detained by IPC Sections 153A, 294, 500, 501, 505, 67, and 98.

Rahul Kanal told India Today that Kamal R. Khan was detained today as a result of his allegation. He supports the Mumbai police's action. On social media, he makes offensive remarks and uses vulgar language. Such conduct is not acceptable in modern society. Mumbai police have issued a stern warning against such individuals by detaining him.
