ACTOR NAWAZUDDIN Siddiqui’s wife filed a counter-complaint on Sunday night against the family members of the girl whose complaint had led to an FIR against the actor at Versova police station earlier in the day.

Siddiqui’s wife alleged that the 24-year-old girl’s family members entered their residence forcibly and misbehaved with her. Meanwhile, the actor went to Versova police station on Monday afternoon to record his statement.

A senior officer confirmed that an FIR on charges of rioting and outraging the modesty of woman was registered against six people including the mother of the girl who had complained against Siddiqui, a man named Khalil, and four other women. “The actor’s wife has alleged that these people forcibly entered their office in the Versova building and misbehaved with her,” he said.

Siddiqui, after coming out of the police station, told media persons that he went there as a responsible citizen. Police would also be recording the statement of the girl’s family in response to the complaint filed by the actor’s wife. According to the girl’s complaint, there was a dispute between society members over the society parking lot, following which the society chairman and secretary had issued notices to all members including Siddiqui. She said that Siddiqui had been occupying a major portion of the parking lot.

On Sunday afternoon, the complainant and her grandmother were sitting in the society office on the ground floor when they saw a boy parking a motorcycle. Siddiqui’s ‘bouncers’, who were present there, asked the boy not to park his bike there.

The complainant said that she went out of the office to click photographs on her mobile. After a short time, Nawazuddin arrived and he started arguing with her, she alleged. “Then suddenly, the actor touched me inappropriately and pushed me saying don’t click photographs,” she said. A senior officer added that the probability of any arrests in the case were unlikely.
