Sanjeeda Sheikh is a popular face of small screen who has also worked in few Bollywood movies. The actor cum performer has bagged several awards in her career. But the latest news about the actor is not pleasing. She has been alleged along with her brother, Anas Abdul Rahim Sheikh and mother, Anisha Sheikh for traumatizing her sister-in-law.
Her sister-in -law, Zakerabanu Zakir Hussain Bagban, filed a Domestic Violence case against the actor and her family under Section 125 of CrPC. “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,“ the 22 years old actor’s sister-in law, Zakerabanu stated to a publication.
She claimed her alleged husband and his family beaten her while on an afternoon on May 27, she was talking to her father over the phone. She continued that members at her in-law’s house started yelling at her and thrashing her, they said that they don’t want her to be at their house. So she left for Ahmedabad, to her parent’s place. She even needed to be hospitalised because of being trashed and tortured, after that she lodged a FIR at Sarkhej Police Station, Ahmedabad on May 29.
The FIR was followed by petition by Sanjeeda’s lawyer Sunny Punamiya who stated that– Zakerabanu had a disturbed relationship with her father because of his orthodox mindset and therefore it was difficult for her to adjust at the liberal environment of her husband’s home. Furthermore on the day of the incident, Zakerabanu was not actually feeling well and had informed Anas, her husband that she is going to her parent’s house and Sanjeeda had been busy shooting on the day of the incident.
Currently the case seems to be in favour of the actress according to the statements of her lawyer given to a local newspaper– “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.“
