Mumbai, Jan 18: A First Information Report (FIR) has been filed against Nawazuddin Siddiqui as he has been accused of assaulting a woman over car parking space.
The Bollywood actor has landed in a serious legal trouble when a woman filed a case against him. However, his manager Anup Pandey overruled such reports asserting that his client has been implicated in a false case.
While Nawazuddin Siddiqui was unavailable to comment on the matter, Mr Pandey was quoted as saying that the actor indeed was involved in an argument. However, he did not hurt anyone physically, confirmed Mr Pandey.
There was an argument but no 'hatha pai' (exchange of physical blows) as claimed in the complaint. The case has been registered without investigation. It is a society issue which has been going on for a long time," Mr Pandey said.
According to media reports, Siddiqui was served a notice by his housing society authorities. He was asked not to park his car at the place which is given for two-wheeler parking.
A heated argument began when a 24-year-old woman reportedly found Siddiqui's car at the two wheeler parking and filed a complaint against the actor.
During the argument, the actor allegedly slapped the woman, police quoted the complainant as saying.
The actor along with his family stays in the housing society located at Yari Road in suburban Andheri where a dispute over car parking space has been going on for the past few days.
The case against the actor has been filed under Section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
