"One breathes freely again", said megastar Amitabh Bachchan after a petition seeking a criminal case against him for not honouring his commitment to build a women's college was dismissed.
"...I feel exonerated in the immediate matter of the land. The justice system has prevailed. The courts have dismissed the petition filed," the actor posted on his blog bigb.bigadda.com after a court in Uttar Pradesh's Barabanki district dismissed the petition on Friday.
"The case has been won and one breathes freely again. Breathes freely again because of the reassurance the legal system gives to individuals who are wrongly and unjustly implicated. Breathes freely again because those that indulge in frivolous complaints and cause considerable anguish to the victimised have been given a lesson by the justice system," he added.
In 2006, Amitabh, along with his wife Jaya, son Abhishek, Aishwarya and close friend Amar Singh visited Daulatpur village and declared that a women's college, named after his daughter-in-law Aishwarya, would be be built there.
However, when there was no activity on the plot ever since, the village head moved the court.
Amitabh is particularly upset on being targeted time and again.
"Year upon year month after month, some accusation or the other is directed towards me or my family. Ridicule and callous statements follow and what remains in the minds of the people is these negative untruthful impressions," he posted.
