Mumbai, Feb 16: Even as the marriage of film star Sanjay Dutt and Manyata has come under the scanner with the Goa state administration ordering an inquiry into the documents submitted by the couple, a local court here has asked the Mumbai police to enquire into allegations levelled by Manyata's ex-husband and submit a report by February 20.
In response to the application filed by Manyata's ex-husband Mehraj Shaikh, the metropolitan magistrate's court at Bandra today ordered Bandra police to enquire into Shaikh's complaint and submit a report by February 20. Shaikh, who incidentally faces charges of sending vulgar SMSes and threatening Bollywood personalities for extortion, had urged the court to initiate legal action against Sanjay and Manyata for violating Muslim marriage norms.
He has stated in his application that he had married Manyata as per Muslim marriage norms on April 5, 2003 and has a two-and-half-year-old son from Manyata who was presently staying with the latter's mother at Hyderabad.
Meanwhile, Goa officials have ordered a probe into the marriage registration process. It is alleged that Manyata had acquired a resident's status in Goa without actually having resided in the state. The couple had submitted their declaration of marriage to the sub-registrar"s office in Salcette on February 7.
