Saif Ali Khan faces arrest, Kareena to be questioned
Saif Ali Khan is in the news again for all wrong reasons. A police complaint has been lodged against the actor by victim Iqbal Sharma. The man had alleged the actor for assaulting him in a Japanese restaurant in south Mumbai and the victim has filed an FIR against the actor. Arrest warrant has been issued in Saif’s name by the Colaba police station and the actor is likely to be arrested.
Victim Iqbal Sharma in his complaint said that while he was having dinner with his family members in Wasabi restaurant in Colaba last night, the actor and his friends sitting next to their table. Saif indulged in a heated argument with Iqbal when he raised objection to the loud conversation by Khan and his friends. When the argument turned worse, Saif hit the man. Reportedly, the man asked Saif to lower his voice.
The actor and his friends have been booked under IPC 325 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention).
Throwing light in this regard, Colaba ACP Iqbal Shaikh said, "Yesterday, Saif Ali Khan and his friends (there were 10 people with him) were at a restaurant in Colaba. Kareena Kapoor and Amrita Arora were with him," said Shaikh.
"Iqbal Sharma was dining there as well. There was an argument (kaha suni) between them. We are now trying to trace Saif and ask him questions. Arrest toh bahut baad ki baat hai," said Shaikh.
Kareena's statement will also be recorded. When police thronged Saif’s residence, he wasn’t there.
This is not the first case of assault lodged against Saif. In 2008, a case was filed against him for allegedly assaulting a photojournalist in Patiala during a film shoot.
Saif next home production ‘Agent Vinod’ with girlfriend Kareena Kapoor is slated to release on March 23. Hope, this incident might not put any negative influence.
