Mumbai: The wife of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s younger brother has filed a police complaint against Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his parents in Muzaffarnagar, alleging torture, an official said on Saturday. The woman has made serious charges on the film actor, saying he kicked her in the stomach when she was three months pregnant.
In a complaint given to Superintendent of Police (Rural) Rakesh Jolly, the woman who married the actor’s younger brother Minauzzidin Siddiqui on May 31, 2016, has alleged that her in-laws have been asking for dowry and misbehaving with her. She has also alleged that Nawazuddin beat her up on September 28.
The woman had first approached the Kotwali police station, but when they did not entertain her complaint, she met the superintendent of police (rural) along with her mother, father and uncle.
Police said they will investigate the matter and act accordingly to law.
Earlier, in January this year, a case was filed at the Versova police station in Mumbai alleging that Nawazuddin had assaulted a woman in his residential complex. Arun Chavan, assistant commissioner of police, said, “We registered a case against Nawazuddin under IPC section 354 (assault or criminal force on woman with intent to outrage her modesty) based on the complainant’s version. As of now we have not arrested any person, and are in the process of verifying the facts.”
According to the complainant, who is the granddaughter of the chairman of the society where both she and Siddiqui live, she was sitting in the society office at around 1.30 pm when a person came and tried to park his motorcycle in the society compound. Nawazuddin’s bodyguards who were standing at the spot asked the person not to park his motorcycle there. The complainant said that when she heard the commotion, she came out of the office and started clicking photographs on her mobile phone. The motorcyclist left the society and at the same time Nawazuddin came down and asked the complainant not to click photographs which led to an altercation. The complainant alleged that when she refused, Nawazuddin pushed her following which she called the police.
