    Fardeen Khan granted immunity in Cocaine case
    Bollywood actor Fardeen Khan heaved a huge sigh of relief, as a special court granted him immunity from the prosecution for the charge that he had attempted to purchase cocaine from a drug peddler in 2001.

    "Fardeen is hereby declared immune from prosecution at this stage," observed the Special Judge GA Sanap.

    Five months after Fardeen was charged under Section 21 (a) read with 8 (c) of Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, special judge GA Sanap granted him immunity from prosecution for the charge. “Fardeen is hereby declared immune from prosecution at this stage,” the Judge said.

    Granting immunity to Fardeen from being prosecuted for an offence that stipulates a maximum punishment of six months and a fine up to Rs 10,000 or both, the judge held that if the actor was arrested for a similar offence in future, the immunity against him would be withdrawn.

    On October 4, 2011, a special court under the NDPS Act charged Fardeen with having attempted to buy cocaine from a drug peddler in 2001.

    The actor had expressed his willingness to undergo detoxification treatment - a pre-condition to seeking immunity from prosecution in the case under 64A of the Act.

    Under Section 64A of the NDPA Act, “any addict” charged with offence involving small quantity of narcotics drug or psychotropic substance, who voluntarily seeks to undergo medical treatment for de-addiction in a State-run hospital shall not be liable for prosecution for the offence the individual is charged with.

    Fardeen, the actor-son of the late Feroz Khan, took to acting in 1998 and has starred in over 20 films including 'Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya' and 'No Entry'.
