Even as a magistrate court sent Sooraj Pancholi to judicial custody Thursday,Versova police booked his father,actor Aditya Pancholi,for allegedly assaulting and abusing his neighbour Wednesday night.
A case of trespassing and causing hurt voluntarily has been registered against him,said an officer.
Complainant Bhargav Patel alleged that Pancholi trespassed into his house at Magnum Opus Building,abused him and started pushing and assaulting him. Patel was getting his house renovated and the frequent noise from drilling was apparently disturbing Aditya,who had raised an objection earlier,police said.
Patel alleged Aditya had abused him and his family members on June 6 and June 19. He claimed he was assaulted by Aditya once before too. Police confirmed the details and said action was kept pending.
Patel approached police again after Aditya walked into his house and allegedly assaulted him. Police have obtained CCTV footage of the building submitted by Patel as evidence.
On Thursday,we went to Pancholis residence to record his statement but he was not there, said an officer.
Meanwhile,Sooraj attended a hearing of the Jiah Khan suicide case at Andheri Magistrate Court through video-conferencing and was sent to judicial custody till July 11.
