Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s niece has filed a sexual harassment case against her uncle (Nawazuddin’s brother) at Delhi’s Jamia Police Station for allegedly abusing her when she was a 9-year-old.

In her interview with a leading daily, she said, “I have filed a complaint about sexual harassment against my uncle who molested me when I was 9. My parents divorced when I was 2, so I had a stepmother. I was tortured a lot. As a child, I did not understand thinking it was my uncle but when I grew up, I realised it was a different kind of touch. There was violence too.”

She also said that Nawaz didn’t support her against his brother. According to her, Nawaz’s reaction when he was informed was ‘Chacha hai, aisa kabhi nahi kar sakte’ (He is your uncle. He can never do such a thing).

She also claimed that the actor and her father have been harassing her in-laws. “Even after my marriage, my father and Nawaz bade papa filed cases to harass my in-laws. Nawaz bade papa once asked me what I wanted to do in life and I had shared with him everything that was happening in my life and about how mentally disturbed I was. But he said there is nothing like that.”

Aaliya Siddiqui. Nawaz’s estranged wife who recently file for divorce, shared a news report about the same on Twitter and wrote, “This is just the beginning. Thanking God for sending so much support already. Lot will be revealed shocking the world as I am not the only one who suffered in silence. Lets see how much of TRUTH money can buy and who all would they continue to BRIBE.”
