A few days ago, Nawazuddin Siddiqui came under fire when his sister-in-law accused him and filed a case against him on the grounds of dowry harassment. She claimed that their family, which includes her husband and brother-in-law Nawazuddin Siddiqui, have been torturing her since she got married.
Soon after the allegations, Nawazuddin Siddiqui held a press conference to tell his side of the story stating all the accusations made by his sister-in-law was just for publicity. He said, “I’m falsely charged by my sister-in-law because I’m a soft target for her and she could have easily made the news out of me. I’m an actor so, that could also be a reason for her allegations. Had it happened with a common man, it would not have made the headlines on television and newspapers.”
Nawazuddin clarified that he had never asked for any dowry from Afrin’s (sister-in-law) family. Rather it was her uncle who always tried to mint money from his brother Minazuddin as when they got a chance.
Nawaz presented CCTV footage of his house from September 28 explaining the whole drama as he had high fever that day. He said, “On the night of September 28, my sister-in-law’s uncle and his wife came at our place with a proper plan of robbery. They entered Minazuddin’s room to meet her. Then we heard a noise in a while and we all ran to see what exactly happened. The moment I reached, I saw my sister-in-law’s uncle was rushing towards the main door with Afrin. I didn’t have any conversation with her nor did I touch her.”
Nawazuddin Siddiqui informed that the CCTV has been given to the police to investigate the case and they are glad they had footage to prove his innocence.
