Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui on Monday filed a cross-FIR against five people following a woman’s complaint that he pushed her and behaved in a bad form during an argument over parking space. The National Award-winning actor says it is a false allegation.
A woman named Heena Sheikh filed the complaint at the Versova police station on Sunday against the actor claiming that he misbehaved with her.
In her statement, Heena, 24, daughter of Soni Dandekar, the chairman of Zohra Aghadi Nagar housing society at Yari Road, also alleged she was manhandled by Nawazuddin’s bodyguard man’s.
However, Nawazuddin has denied that he knows the woman.
I have come to know that there is a girl named Heena Sheikh who has put this charged allegation on me. Even I am not familiar who she is or if she reside in the society or not, or where she stays. It is a fake allegation that has been put on me, Nawazuddin told reporters here while talking about the issue outside the Versova police station on Monday.
Nawazuddin, who recorded his statement at the police station, said there was no notice sent to him. He even disagree having visited the police station for bail, saying there was no need for bail.
The police didn’t arouse us, but being a responsible citizen, I came here along with my lawyer and recorded my statement about how wrong the allegation is.
He concluded that he wants the “false charge” on him to be detached as he had put in his money to clean up the area in front of his office premises.
When asked if he was being maligned for monetary reasons, the National Award winner said: “There are various reasons and it’s there in it (statement).”
Talking about the happening, Nawazuddin’s manager said that two men and three women barged into the actor’s office here on Sunday to meet him and give him a notice to depart the area in front of his office.
However, since Nawaz never claimed that the area was his, there was no question of vacating it, said the manager.
Nawazuddin’s lawyer said the matter is in the investigation grade.
