Today morning, Popular TV and film actor Shahbaz Khan was accused of allegedly molesting a teenage girl, and was booked by the Mumbai Police under the same case. An FIR had been filed against Shahbaz under section 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and section 509 (Word, gesture or act intended to insult modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
And now in a shocking statement, Shahbaz has revealed the full truth behind the molestation controversy. He has filed a cross-complaint against the girl and her gang of friends, and also narrated the entire incident to Spotboye.
Shahbaz narrated his ordeal by saying:
I have a 17-year-old daughter who is in the 12th grade. We reside in Yamuna Nagar (Lokhandwala). A girl had some issues with my daughter and one day, she landed below my building with 20 young guys and girls and started calling out to my daughter. I was not at home, but my wife was there. My daughter went down and then the girl started hurling abuses. My wife went down and tried to settle the matter. We didn’t really take any legal action against her considering that this would just be a teenage fight. However, later when my daughter was on the back road (Andheri) on a scooter with a friend, that girl came from behind and usne meri beti ko chalti hui scooter se neeche giraya, sarr pe do baar maara aur scooter pe baithkar bhaag gayi.
Then my daughter returned home crying and howling, seeing her in that state, me and my wife lost our cool and went to look for that girl. We went to the third crosslane and saw one of her friends along with some more people standing there. Me, my daughter and my wife went up to that girl and asked her where is the girl who hit my daughter? I didn’t want to go to the cops as they are all youngsters and I know how it could impact their future. However, this girl friend of hers gathered with her parents and went to the Oshiwara police station and filed an FIR against me without any proof stating that I touched her in an inappropriate manner. To my disbelief, the cops too took her complaint willingly without any proof whatsoever.
Shahbaz has also filed a cross-complaint against the girl and her friends who abused his daughter.
On being further probed on what went wrong between the teenage girl and his daughter, he revealed “That girl was under the misconception that her boyfriend is making calls to my daughter which was not true. Whatever be the reason, nobody has the right to do this. My daughter could have died. Fortunately, she didn’t suffer any grave injuries.”
He further added that the girl who has filed the molestation FIR is trying to frame him as he claims that he did not even touch the girl, and it has been recorded in the CCTV as well.
Further, Shahbaz revealed that he plans to keep a press conference to clear the air, and further added, “Yesterday, the cops told me that they won't arrest me until they verify facts. I fail to understand how can they take such a case of molestation? I filed a case against the girl who hit my daughter at the Versova police station, and her friend got along with her last night, and then filed a complaint against me to save that girl to get even with my daughter.”
