Nawazuddin Siddiqui: Assault case was planned against me
Breaking silence over the FIR registered against him for allegedly assaulting a woman over a parking dispute, Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui said that the whole incident was planned against him
Breaking silence over the FIR registered against him for allegedly assaulting a woman over a parking dispute, Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui said that the whole incident was planned against him at a press conference in Mumbai on Friday afternoon.
Nawazuddin said, "The entire incident was pre-planned against me. They tried to provoke me and my family and tried to video record our conversation and reaction in defence anticipating that we will file a FIR against them. The police is investigating the matter and I want the truth to come out. I enjoy my profession as an actor and want to focus only on my acting. I have and always want to stay away from any kind of negativity and thus wanted to clarify my side with the media."
His advocate Rizwan Siddiquee further said,"The police will do a proper investigation in the matter, and the truth will be out soon. The aim and object of the complainant is apparent from her own conduct and I need not say more. The fact that the complainant as a third party was interfering in a self-created society matter and provoking my client says it all."
In her complaint, the woman pointed out that the 'Manjhi: The Mountain Man' star had refused to accept a notice sent earlier by the society's chairman and secretary to the members over parking space-related complaints. In this regard, the 'Badlapur' actor said that he never saw the complainant in the society before.
"I don't know who this complainant Heena Sheikh is, I have never seen her in the society," he said, adding "If you carefully look at the notice they (complainants) had shown, it wasn't signed by any of the society members."
According to media reports, Siddiqui was served a notice by his housing society authorities. He was asked not to park his car at the place, which is given for the two-wheeler parking.
A heated argument began when the 24-year-old woman reportedly found Siddiqui's car at the two wheeler parking and filed a complaint against the actor.
The police quoted the complainant as saying that during the argument, the actor allegedly slapped her.
