The Amboli police on Wednesday arrested music composer Ismail Darbar in connection with the assault case filed against him by assistant director Prashmit Chaudhari.
On Tuesday, the police arrested Ismail’s son Zaid, along with two other accused, identified as Mohsin Khan and Nishant Singh, after Chaudhari alleged that they had assaulted him over an argument regarding unpaid dues. Chaudhari had named the father-son duo, as well as Khan and Singh, in his complaint filed with the Amboli police.
According to police officials, Ismail was picked up from Oshiwara on Wednesday and brought to the police station for inquiries, after which he was placed under arrest.
“Ismail was arrested and subsequently granted bail. We are conducting further inquiries against him and the other three accused,” said senior police inspector Ramesh Khadtare of Amboli police station.
Chaudhari, in his complaint, alleged that he had approached Ismail earlier this month and asked for the dues that they owed him, which led to an argument. He further said that on Monday night, Zaid, along with Khan
and Singh, called him to meet them outside the Evershine Cosmic building on Andheri Link Road where he stays and assaulted him severely.
“There are no closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras in the building where the incident took place. We are conducting investigations to find other corroborative evidence against the accused before we file a chargesheet in the case,” Khadtare added.
The police have charged Ismail, Zaid, Khan and Singh with cases of assault and criminal intimidation under the Indian Penal Code.
