Recently, Aaliya Siddiqui’s lawyer has claimed that his client has been denied “food, bed, and a bathroom to take showers” for the past seven days by Nawazuddin Siddiqui and other members of the renowned actor’s family.
In a statement, Rizwan Siddiqui said,
“Mr. Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family members did everything they could to get my client, Mrs. Aaliya Siddiqui, out of the house. They filed an untenable criminal complaint of trespass against her. After that, through the police, they threatened to arrest her and were calling her each day to the police station after sunset.”
“While I do not want to directly attribute the actions and failures of the police department to them, the fact remains that no police officer ever came to protect my client’s rights, even when her modesty was insulted before the police officers. Not only was her relationship with Mr. Nawazuddin Siddiqui called into question before the police officer, but so was the legitimacy of her minor son. Yet the police officer did not act on the written complaint given by my client under Section 509 of IPC,”
the advocate added.
Explaining how Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife was tortured inside his house, the lawyer further added,
“Mr. Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family members have in the last seven days ensured that no food, no bed, and no bathroom to take a bath is given to my client. They have even posted innumerable male bodyguards all around my client and installed CCTV cameras in the hall, where my client is currently staying with her minor children,” he continued.
“To add to all of this, they even ensured that I did not obtain any signatures of my client to file appropriate court cases against Mr. Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family members. Despite being stopped and threatened at multiple levels, and with no police officer coming to my client’s aid, my team and I obtained my client’s signatures for the court cases. Accordingly, multiple cases are being filed in the courts now,” the advocate concluded.
A few days ago, Aaliya alleged that she was being harassed at her home after Nawazuddin’s mother filed a complaint against her over a property dispute.
Currently, Aaliya is staying at Nawazuddin’s home in Andheri. It has been reported that Aaliya and her children, Yaani and Shora, had to return from Dubai because of passport problems.
According to reports, Aaliya aka Zainab is Nawazuddin’s second wife. Nawazuddin and Aaliya, formerly known as Anjana Kishor Pandey, formerly known as Zainab, have been married for nearly a decade.
They have two children together
In a 2020 interview, Aaliya mentioned that Nawaz was unfaithful to her and claimed that Nawaz’s brother had assaulted her. She revoked her divorce from Nawazuddin in 2021. The couple, however, was living separately.
