The FIR was registered three days after Aamir brought the matter to the notice of police.

Aamir had met Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Sadanand Date at Mumbai Police Headquarters on Saturday and briefed him about the malicious messages allegedly being circulated in social networking sites to damage his image and the reputation of his issue-based TV show.

"False and malicious messages are circulating through various electronic media including Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter as well as other social media networks, alleging donations are being sought by my television program Satyamev Jayate Season 2, in relation to an entity which claims to be working in the field of Masjid Construction Assistance and placement assistance for Muslim youngsters," Aamir had posted on his Facebook account.

The actor said his TV show was associated with the Humanity Trust at Hanspukur in West Bengal, which is a charitable hospital run by Ajoy Mistry and his mother Subhashini Mistry and not the one being mentioned on social media.
