The Allahabad High Court has stayed the arrest of actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui in a case of molestation filed by his estranged wife. Nawazuddin’s lawyer Zafar Zaidi gave this information. Zaidi said that the court has stayed the arrest of Nawazuddin, his 2 brothers Fayazuddin and Ayazuddin and mother Mehrunnisa. However, his third brother Munazuddin did not get relief from the court.
His wife Alia, who is separated from Nawazuddin, had filed a complaint against these people on July 27, accusing the actor, his 3 brothers and mother of assaulting him in 2012 and molesting the minor child of the family. A case was registered in this regard under the relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and the Pocso Act. Aaliya appeared in the Pocso court here on October 14 and recorded her statement before the female magistrate.
