Nawazuddin Siddiqui‘s estranged wife Aaliya Siddiqui who goes by her maiden name, Anjana Anand Kishore Pandey now, recently recorded her statement in relation to her allegations against Nawazuddin’s brother Shamas Siddiqui.
A few months ago Aaliya had filed for a divorce against the ‘Serious Men’ actor. Now, a new report by PTI states that Nawazuddin’s wife has recorded her statement before the court. She is said to have reiterated her allegations against the actor’s brother Shamas that he had molested a family member in 2012.
The report also further revealed that the Circle Officer Girija Shankar Tripathi has said that Aaliya also appeared before the POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) court for recording her statement under the section 164 of the CrPC against her husband and his four family members.
Earlier, a report in Zoom stated that Aaliya’s lawyer had issued an official statement that read, “My client had submitted a detailed written complaint to Versova Police Station for Rape, Cheating and Deceitfully causing cohabitation by inducing her a belief of lawful marriage, under sections 375, 376 (k), 376 (n), 420 and 493 of the Indian Penal Code against Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui. Hopefully, the F.I.R will be registered soon.”
Reacting to these reports, Nawazuddin’s brother Shamas had tweeted through his handle, “Chahe to 10-12 Jhoote cases kar do but Mai apna 2.16 Cr tumse court mein le kar hi rahunga….Parivaar ko bhi jhoote cases mein phasaya ja raha Hai aur ye saza mil rahi hai 30 crore ki demnd Puri na karne ki .”

Earlier in an interview with Pinkvilla, Aaliya had alleged that Nawazuddin used to call women over to their house when she was pregnant with their first child, she said, “When I was pregnant, I had to drive all by myself for check-ups. My doctor used to tell me that I’m mad and I’m the first lady who’s come Alone for delivery. My labour pain started and Nawaz and his parents were there. But when I was in pain, my husband is not with me. He was talking to his girlfriend on calls. I knew everything because there used to be itemised statement of phone bills.”
