An FIR was lodged against actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui for allegedly assaulting a woman over parking space at his residential society in Mumbai.

THE VERSOVA police station on Sunday registered an FIR against actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui for allegedly assaulting and misbehaving with a woman over a dispute related to a parking space in their housing society here. The actor was charged under section 354 of the IPC (deals with assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty). 

Siddiqui's manager Anup Pandey, however, has denied the charge. He claimed "It is a false case. The case has been registered without investigation. There was an argument but no 'hatha pai' (exchange of physical blows) as claimed in the complaint. We will take the matters up," however Mr Siddiqui could not be immediately reached out for comments.

According to the police, a dispute over car parking space has been going on for the past few days. The housing society authorities, through a letter, had asked Mr Siddiqui to avoid parking his car at a spot reserved for two-wheelers, police said. An argument broke out between the actor and the complainant

The complainant said that her 24-year-old daughter had been manhandled by the actor, his brother and support staff on Sunday afternoon.
