Nawazuddin Siddiqui is making to the headlines almost every day. His 21-year-old niece filed a sexual harassment case against his younger brother, at Jamia Nagar police station in Delhi on Monday after which she left for Budhana, UP to be with her in-laws.
Since Siddiqui’s family also resides there, she shares being “worried about everyone’s safety.”
She told a media portal, “I’ve lived my whole life in trauma and distress. Even after marriage, these people have been torturing me, my husband and in-laws, and would file cases against us.”
She shares that soon after she filed the FIR, Nawazuddin called her for the first time in the last five years. “Nawaz bade papa called on Tuesday night and said ‘you’re like my daughter, you know how much I love you. Unhone yeh bhi bola ki unko yeh sab pata nahi tha’ and that he’s there for any help I need.
He has never spoken to me in all these years. The entire family had boycotted me after I got married, and they’ve been filing one case after another and threatening my in-laws in Budhana,” reveals the mother of a five-month-old daughter, who lives in Delhi with her husband.
When a media portal contacted Nawazuddin, he said, “Thank you for your concern, but on this, no comment.”
Alleging that now Siddiqui family has threatened her to withdraw the complaint, she claims, “A family relative was told to inform us that we’ll be in trouble if we don’t take the case back. That’s why I’m worried.”
