Mumbai, Jan. 18 (ANI): Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui on Monday denied charges of physically assaulting a woman over parking space in his society, saying that the charges are false.
“A girl named Heena Sheikh has put false allegations of assault against me. I was not summoned by the police, but being a responsible citizen I came with my lawyer and gave statement. I briefed about the actual incident,” Siddiqui told the media here.
“I got to know that her name is Heena Sheikh. I have no information about her. All the people of the society are with us,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Mumbai Police said that it is verifying all the facts in the case and investigation is on.
“We are verifying all the facts. There are allegations and we have started the investigation. Nawazuddin has come to the police station, so we will consider his statement and verify. The issue is about parking in the society,” Additional Commissioner of Police Arun Chouhan told the media here.
A police complaint has been filed against Siddiqui and others for allegedly physically assaulting a woman during an argument over parking issue. An FIR in this regard has been filed at the Versova Police Station in Mumbai.
“Nawaz has purchased flat a year ago. He has replaced a wall and had modified it for parking. I had served several notices to him to vacate society’s compound space. He refused to accept the notice that I sent yesterday. Instead two bouncers were brought to oppose anyone attempting to park vehicle in the compound,” complainant’s mother said.
“When my daughter started clicking pictures, Nawazuddin physically assaulted her and verbally abused her,” she added. (ANI)
