New Delhi: Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife Aaliya’s lawyer reportedly claims that the actor and his family haven’t given his client “food, a bed, or a bathroom to take a bath” in the last week.
“Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family members did everything possible to remove my client Mrs Aaliya Siddiqui from the house. They filed an untenable criminal complaint of trespass against her. Thereafter, through the police they threatened to arrest her and were calling her each day to the police station, after sunset,” Rizwan Siddiquee said in a statement.
Further, he asserted that no police officer had shown up to defend the rights of his client.
“Whilst, I do not want to directly attribute the actions and the failures of the police department to them, yet the fact remains that no police officer ever came to protect my clients’ rights, even when her modesty was insulted before the police officers. Not only her relationship with Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui was questioned before the police officer, but even the legitimacy of the minor son was questioned. Yet the police officer did not act on the written complaint given by my client under Section 509 of IPC,” the advocate continued .
“Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family members have in the last seven days ensured that no food, no bed, and no bathroom to take bath is given to my client. They have even posted innumerable male bodyguards all around my client and further installed CCTV cameras in the hall, where my client is currently staying with her minor children,” he added.
Aaliya’s lawyer also stated that Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family have taken extra measures to prevent him from getting any signatures from his client in order to initiate the proper legal actions against them.
“Despite being stopped and threatened at multiple levels and no police officer coming to the aid of my client, me and my team managed to obtain signatures of my client for the court cases,” he said.
Following Nawazuddin’s mother’s filing of a complaint against her over a property dispute, Aaliya claimed last week that she was being harassed at her home. Currently, Aaliya resides at Nawazuddin’s home in Andheri.
