Aditya Pancholi booked for punching & assaulting neighbour
Even as his son languishes at Arthur Road Jail, Aditya Pancholi continues to make news for all the wrong reasons. A case was registered against the actor at the Versova police station last night for beating up his neighbour. Pancholi had reportedly trespassed into his neighbour Bhargav Patel’s house, abused and assaulted him. Apparently, Pancholi was annoyed with the din created by the ongoing construction work at his neighbour’s apartment.
According to the complainant, this was not the first time the family has faced the wrath of the actor. There were similar showdowns on June 6 and June 19 over the same issue. However, this time it turned violent and Pancholi ‘pushed, punched and assaulted’ Patel. Not willing to take it lying down, Patel rushed to the Versova police and filed a case of trespassing under section 452 and causing voluntarily hurt under section 323 of Indian Penal code.
Cops have recorded Patel’s statement and are looking for evidence in the CCTV footage of the building. When they went to the Pancholi residence, Aditya was not there.
In an interview to this newspaper, Zarina Wahab had said that her husband has always been misunderstood. “He is like soda-water,” she had said, about his temper that settles down when he is left alone. But the flare–ups have continued. In fact, at Jiah Khan’s funeral too, he got into an altercation with mediapersons.
Meanwhile on Thursday, Suraj Pancholi was produced in the Andheri court and his judicial custody was extended till July 1, compounding Zarina’s woes.
