Mumbai: According to a written complaint filed at the Versova Police Station on Thursday evening, an unknown man barged into a photo studio at Mhada, Four Bungalows and hurled an empty beer bottle at model and actress Arshi Khan while she was shooting for a magazine with photographer Jude Fernandes.
The complainant Jude Fernandes, owner of Starline Photo Studio has alleged in his complaint that, on 26th November 2015, at about 3.40 pm, he was in his studio along with model and actress Ms Arshi Khan. The photo shoot had just started when a man pushed open the door, barged in and hurled an empty beer bottle at Arshi Khan. “The bottle missed hitting Ms Arshi Khan but fell on the floor and broke into many pieces. Before I could react to the situation (I was adjusting my camera and my concentration was on the camera) the unknown man had run away. Arshi Khan’s manager Rajesh Singh was also present in the room and so was her make up man Gajendra. The unknown man while throwing the bottle shouted “Jai Maharashtra” and ran away even before we could react to the situation,” Fernandes has stated in his complaint adding that they tried to chase the man, but before they could react the man had disappeared into the lanes of Mahada. The door got cracked and while the beer bottle missed hitting Arshi Khan it hit a lamp which fell down and broke, Jude Fernandes explained.
According to a description provided by Arshi Khan who was facing the door/camera end and managed to get a glimpse of the assailant, the unknown person was wearing black color trousers and red and black stripped shirt. He was about 5.6 in height and was slim built. He had a thin moustache with ruffled hair.
Fernandes has submitted a written complaint to the Versova Police station and the police are looking into the matter. PSI Atul Sanab at Versova Police Station said the police are investigating the complaint and trying to identity the miscreant. “We have received a written complaint on behalf of Arshi Khan and the studio photographer and will take appropriate action,” Sanab said.
