According to a report by Zoom, yesterday, on September 23, 2020, Nawazuddin's estranged wife, Anjana had filed a written complaint against him at the Versova police station and had accused the actor of rape and cheating. The Police had acknowledged the complaint, and an F.I.R. was underway. On the other hand, Nawazuddin Siddiqui' brother, Shamas Siddiqui claimed that the charges are false and that he would approach Bombay High Court over the matter, citing defamation.
Anjana's lawyer had issued an official statement over the matter and had said, "My client had submitted a detailed written complaint to Versova Police Station for Rape, Cheating and Deceitfully causing cohabitation by inducing her a belief of lawful marriage, under sections 375, 376 (k), 376 (n), 420 and 493 of the Indian Penal Code against Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Hopefully, the F.I.R. will be registered soon."
Not only this, but Anjana had earlier registered an F.I.R. against Nawazudin's brother, Shamas also, reportedly accusing him of molestation. A Mumbai court had rejected his anticipatory bail plea on September 14, 2020. On September 21, 2020, Anjana had claimed in her Tweet that Shamas has been absconding for almost a week and that the Police wants him for serious crimes. Her tweet could be read as "@ShamasSiddiqui is absconding since almost a week & Police are on the look-out for him. He is wanted for serious crimes. Anyone having any information of him, please share so that he can be duly arrested for custodial interrogation as per Court Order. Please help."
