A domestic violence case has been filed against TV actress Sanjeeda Shaikh and her family by her sister-in-law Zakerabanu Zakir Hussain Bagban, according to reports.
According to Zakerabanu, her husband, that is Sanjeeda’s brother, Anas Abdul Rahim Sheikh, used to physically abuse her.
“They often demanded money from my father and would beat me up. My husband is alcoholic, a drug addict and is also involved in match-fixing,” as per Zakerabanu reports.
22-year-old Zakerabanu has been living in Ahmedabad for the past three months.
On May 27, Sanjeeda, her brother, and their mother assaulted her while Zakerabanu was speaking to her father on phone.
Apparently, they didn’t want her to stay in Mumbai with them.
Later Zakerabanu was hospitalised, due to the injuries suffered during the assault.
However, Sanjeeda and her family earlier filed a petition that states claims made by Zakerabanu are false.
Sanjeeda states that Zakerabanu has been brought up in an orthodox environment, which is why she was having trouble adjusting to her husband’s family.
So far, things are in Sanjeeda’s favour as her lawyer told that court has passed a judgement in favour of the actress.
