The Vashi police have booked actor and former Bigg Boss contestant Ajaz Khan and his bodyguards for allegedly assaulting two people at a fashion show.
Senior police inspector Anil Deshmukh said that Mr. Khan was the show-stopper for a designer at India Design Week held on April 29 and 30 at the CIDCO Exhibition Centre in Vashi.
An officer from the Vashi police station said, “Mr. Khan was asked to arrive at the venue at 9 p.m., but showed up at 7.30 p.m. When he was made to sit with the audience in the front row, Mr. Khan and his bodyguards picked a fight with the organisers. They wanted to know they were not given a special room.”
The officer said that Mr. Khan started arguing with Sam Abdul Shikur Khan, the director of the show, and Deepshika Chaudhary, an event manager from Kharghar. The accused also beat up Pankajkumar Rajendrakumar, a model, who tried to stop the fight.
Police inspector Sanjeev Dhumal said, “Mr. Khan and his bodyguards left after the scuffle. Ms. Chaudhary then approached the Vashi police and filed a complaint against the accused. We have registered an FIR and are on the lookout for the accused. We will arrest them soon.”
The accused have been booked for rioting and assaulting. In October 2018, the Anti Narcotics Cell of the Navi Mumbai police arrested Mr. Khan for being in possession of eight ecstasy pills worth ₹2.20 lakh.
