He later came too close to my car, scratched it, leaving it damaged to an extent

Mid-Day quoted the actress as saying, "He later came too close to my car and scratched it, leaving it damaged to an extent, without even bothering about the fact that there was a toddler in the car who got petrified watching what was happening. Shocked by what he just did, I stopped my car, and he too stopped his vehicle extremely close to mine, thus blocking my path. He even tried opening my car door, which luckily I had shut. Later, he went on to abuse and yell unnecessarily. A few minutes later I frantically started making calls, which he noticed, and that's when he decided to escape in his vehicle."

"It was a slum area around and the man was trying to take advantage, because he saw two women in a car. Thanks to the support and encouragement of a few friends, I decided to file a police complaint." An FIR was registered against an unidentified driver at Shahu Nagar police station. Kapadia also described the ordeal in a Facebook update, posting photographs of the man as well," added Alefia in her complaint.
