Complaint against Nawazuddin for harassing brother’s wife

A police complaint has been filed against Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui for harassment and torture. Afrin, wife of the ‘Freaky Ali’ actor’s younger brother Minauzzidin, registered the complaint in Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh on Thursday (Sept. 29).

The woman in her complaint to the police has stated that her husband Minauzzidin, and his siblings actor Nawazuddin, Faizuddin, Majuddin and sister-in-law Saima were harassing and torturing her for dowry. She made serious allegations against the actor saying that he kicked her in the stomach when she was three months pregnant, according to agency reports citing police sources.

In the complaint given to Superintendent of Police (Rural) Rakesh Jolly, Afrin, who married the actor's brother Minauzzidin on May 31, 2016, has alleged that her in-laws have been asking for dowry and misbehaving with her. She has also alleged that Nawazuddin beat her up on September 28.

The woman had first approached the Kotwali police station, but when they did not entertain her complaint, she met the superintendent of police (rural) along with her mother, father and uncle.

Police have not yet registered a case in this connection, the SP said, adding that they are probing the matter. If prima facie allegations are found to be true, a case will be registered. The complaint has been sent to Budhana Police for probe, the SP informed.
