Saif Ali Khan charge sheeted in midnight brawl case

Posted on Dec 22, 08:29AM | UNI

Ten months after Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan allegedly assaulted a South-Africa based businessman Iqbal Mir Sharma and his father-in-law at a luxury hotel in Colaba, Mumbai Police has filed a charge sheet against him and his two associates in the case.

"Colaba police station filed the charge sheet against Saif Ali Khan in a metropolitan magistrate court on Thursday," police said today.

Saif and his two friends- Shakeel Ladak and Bilal Amrohi-- have been charge sheeted under section 325 (assault) of IPC.

The police have also added the statement of 29 people in the charge sheet, sources said. Saif and his friends were arrested following a complaint filed by Sharma after the two got into a fight at the Wasabi restaurant in Taj Hotel on February 22. The trio was later released on bail.

The 42-year-old actor was accompanied by Kareena Kapoor, her sister Karisma, Malaika Arora Khan, Amrita Arora and some friends at the Taj when the brawl broke out.

According to police, when Mr Sharma protested the raucous chatter of the actor and his friends, Saif allegedly threatened them and subsequently punched Sharma in the nose, fracturing it. The NRI businessman also accused Saif and his friends of hitting his father-in-law Raman Patel.

However, Saif had maintained that Mr Sharma made provocative statements or rather used abusive language against women with him and this led to the ruckus.
