Aaliya has issued her statement against her husband
Indian actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s estranged wife, Aaliya Siddiqui has reportedly recorded a statement against him before the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) court.
Lately, the ongoing Sushant Singh Rajput death case has been taking the spotlight.
Many may have forgotten the uncompleted Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Aaliya saga.
The case seemingly took a backseat for a while, however, a new development in the saga has been brought to light.
Reportedly, Aaliya has issued a statement against her husband under section 164 of the CrPC.
The case has been reported against Nazwazuddin and four other family members.
According to a report by PTI, Aaliya also stated that Nawazuddin’s brother had molested a family member in 2012.
The report further added the actor’s brother, Saifuddin Siddiqui has accused Aaliya of trying to extort money from Nawazuddin.
He also claimed that she is blackmailing the actor as a means of extorting money.
The actor’s wife filed for divorce on May 7, 2020, stating there are “several reasons” behind their failed marriage.
Speaking about the notice sent to Nawazuddin, Aaliya’s lawyer said:
“Yes, it is to confirm that we have sent a legal notice to Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The notice was sent on behalf of Mrs Aaliya Siddiqui on May 7, 2020.
“Due to unprecedented Covid-19 times, the notice could not be sent through speed post. It has been sent through email as well as WhatsApp.
“However, Mr Siddiqui has not responded till date. I think he is just keeping quiet regarding the notice and ignoring it.
“The notice has been sent claiming maintenance and divorce. I would not like to get into the details of the notice regarding what are the contents and what are the allegations.
“But let me tell you that the allegations are quite serious and those are very sensitive to Mr Siddiqui as well as his family members.”
In June 2020, Aaliya also released a recording of a phone conversation between herself and Nawazuddin.
Later, the actor’s niece, Sasha also accused Nawazuddin’s brother, Shamas of sexual misconduct when she was just nine.
She further added that her father and uncles fabricated evidence against her.
This startling turn of events certainly shocked many people.
However, Nawazuddin and his family have strongly denied the allegations made against them.
In fact, the actor sent a legal notice to his estranged wife accusing her of engaging in fraud, willful and planned defamation and slander of character.
We wait to see whether the Nawazuddin and Aaliya saga is reignited with this latest development.
