TV actress Sanjeeda Sheikh, who is one of the most loved actresses and who has made several appearances in TV serials and reality shows, has been apparently charged for domestic violence. Both, her family and herself have been booked for the act.
Sanjeeda's sister-in-law Zakerabanu Zakir Hussain Bagban has filed a domestic violence case against Sanjeeda, her brother Anas Abdul Rahim Sheikh and mother Anisha Sheikh. Zakerabanu has mentioned in her complain that she was speaking to her father over the phone on May 27 when these three started yelling and beating her up saying that they didn't want her in their Mumbai home anymore.
Soon after she took a flight to Ahmedabad to her parents and was admitted in a local hospital. After getting discharged on May 29, she lodged a FIR at Sarkhej police station. This was followed by a petition from Sanjeeda's lawyer seeking to reverse Zakerbanu's FIR.
The Petition which was a counter alleged that Zakerabanu had a disturbing relationship with her father due to his orthodox attitude and which adversely affected her equation with her husband and made it difficult for her to adjust to the more liberal environment of her martial home.
The petition further stated that on the day of the alleged incident, Zakerabanu informed her husband Anas that she wasn't well and that she had quit the makeup institute that she was training in, to leave early for her parents' house. Sanjeeda had been shooting for her TV serial at the time of this alleged incident took place. Speaking to a leading tabloid, Sanjeeda's lawyer Sunny Punamiya told, “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 the jurisdiction and merely filed to harass my client.”
