Ten months after a complaint was logged against actor Saif Ali Khan for allegedly assaulting a South-Africa based businessman Iqbal Mir Sharma and his father-in-law at a luxury hotel in Colaba, the Mumbai Police has filed a charge sheet against the Bollywood actor and his two associates in the case.
“Colaba police station filed the charge sheet against Saif Ali Khan in a metropolitan magistrate court on Thursday," said Zonal DCP Ravindra Shishwe to PTI today.
Saif Ali Khan and his two friends -- Shakeel Ladak and Bilal Amrohi-- have been charge sheeted under section 325 (assault) of IPC. The police have also added the statement of 29 persons in the charge sheet, sources said.
On February 22, Mr. Sharma filed a complaint against Saif Ali Khan and his friend after he and Saif Ali Khan and friends got into a fight. The trio was arrested later that day and was later released on bail.
According to police, when Mr Sharma protested the raucous chatter of the actor and his friends, Saif allegedly threatened them and subsequently punched Sharma in the nose, fracturing it. The NRI businessman also accused Saif and his friends of hitting his father-in-law Raman Patel.
But Saif Ali Khan claims that Mr Sharma made provocative statements and used abusive language against Kareena Kapoor, her sister Karisma, Malaika Arora Khan, Amrita Arora, who was accompanying Saif Ali Khan and his friends.
