It was planned against me: Nawazuddin Siddiqui on assault case

Breaking silence over the FIR registered against him, Bollywood actor says that the whole incident was planned against him.

Mumbai: Breaking silence over the FIR registered against him for allegedly assaulting a woman over a parking dispute, Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui said that the whole incident was planned against him.

"I just want to say that it was an unfortunate incident and this was all planned against me," the 41-year-old actor told the media here.

In her complaint, the woman pointed out that the 'Manjhi: The Mountain Man' star had refused to accept a notice sent earlier by the society's chairman and secretary to the members over parking space-related complaints. In this regard, the 'Badlapur' actor said that he never saw the complainant in the society before.

"I don't know who this complainant Heena Sheikh is, I have never seen her in the society," he said, adding "If you carefully look at the notice they (complainants) had shown, it wasn't signed by any of the society's members."

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 the two-wheeler parking.

A heated argument began when the 24-year-old woman reportedly found Siddiqui's car at the two wheeler parking and filed a complaint against the actor.

The police quoted the complainant as saying that during the argument, the actor allegedly slapped her.

Seems like actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui is too 'image-conscious' to keep mum about the FIR registered against him for allegedly assaulting a woman over a parking dispute.

"I held this press conference so that no such negative image goes to the society," he told the media here.

When asked about whether or not the 'Badlapur' actor will take any action against the complainant, he said, "I don't want to take any action against her. I just want to get things clarified to the society. Why will I take any action? She did a mistake."

Thinking the whole incident to be a planned one, the 41-year-old actor said he was the easiest target to get in news.

"I was the easiest target in the society and hence I was victimized...I am the easiest way for them to get in news," he said.

The Versova Police Station had on January 17 registered an FIR against the actor after a 24-year-old woman residing in the same housing society, approached them alleging that he had pushed her and behaved inappropriately following a dispute over parking space.

The actor was charged under Section 354 of the IPC that deals with assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty.
