Tv actress Sanjeeda Sheikh’s sister-in-law, Zakerabanu Zakir Hussain Bagban has filed a domestic violence case against her husband and the family under section – Section 125 of CrPC. Zakerbanu said, “They often demanded money from my father and would beat me up. My husband is alcoholic, a drug addict and is also involved in match-fixing,“ stated Zakerabanu as per reports on Mumbai Mirror. The 22 year old girl has been staying at her own home in Ahmedabad for the last three months.
On May 27, when she was talking over the phone with her father, Sanjeeda, her brother and their mother started yelling at her and beating her up stating they didn’t want her to stay at their Mumbai office anymore. She then flew to Ahmedabad where she was admitted to a hospital. It was the final straw when Anas raised his hand on me in the presence of my mother and sister in their Mumbai home. I was hospitalised after that in Ahmedabad. I was told at the time of our marriage that he is in the construction business but he is mostly home.” She also said that her in-laws never asked to get back home after she left.
So as to see Sanjeeda’s side, she and her family filed a petition against her allegations that states that Zakerabanu had a disturbed relationship with her father and because of his orthodox attitude it was difficult for her to adjust the liberal environment of her husband’s home. On the day of the incident, Zakerabanu was not actually feeling well and Sanjeeda was busy shooting on the day of the incident.
The latest update suggests that the case is in Sajeeda’s favor. Her lawyer said, “The Hon’ble Court has passed an order in favour of my client by stating that the investigating agency should not take any coercive steps against her. In other words, the Hon’ble Court accepted our submission that the FIR is baseless, bad in jurisdiction and merely filed to harass my client.”
We hope everything gets okay!
